Running mongod --port 27030 (a different port) fixes it.

Error code: 100

Quick fix run as a super user.It should work but its not recommended - i don't know why.
Can be fixed by changing the user permissions on the data/db directory. Its currently read only run sudo chmod -R 600 data/db.

Fixed it by changing the wireTiger user group permissions on the db directory.
sudo chown mt:mt data/db/WiredTiger* mt:mt in this case should be your primary user group.
You'll probably to run into another error relating to user group permissions, so it's safer to use sudo chown -R mt:mt data/db to change the user group permissions for all directories.

Run mongod --port 27030 again.

And you should get this
