Nodejs - error in a code

Recommended Posts

I am currently working mongodb and nodejs from w3schools website. I have seen an error in a code. 


In this website there is a code for creating website. : 

var MongoClient = require('mongodb').MongoClient;
var url = "mongodb://localhost:27017/mydb";

MongoClient.connect(url, function(err, db) {
  if (err) throw err;
  console.log("Database created!");

When I run this, I see this on the terminal: 

(node:26812) DeprecationWarning: current Server Discovery and Monitoring engine is deprecated, and will be removed in a future version. To use the new Server Discover and Monitoring engine, pass option { useUnifiedTopology: true } to the MongoClient constructor.
Database created!


I needed to change 3rd line. 

old 3rd line: 

MongoClient.connect(url, function(err, db) {

new 3rd line: 

MongoClient.connect(url, {useUnifiedTopology: true}, function(err, db) {
