Default Help running mongDB on 10.04

I wanted to check out the mongoDB. I followed the installation
instructions and it installed and runs as long as I don't change the
default dbpath in mongodb.conf. The default is fine for testing but to
use it I want the data in my home folder.

are the defaults and if I do sudo service mongodb start it starts as
verified by sudo service mongodb status and then $ mongo will start the
shell and I can interact with it.

If I modify the mongodb.conf file to:
and do sudo service mongodb start it says it starts and runs but if I do
sudo service mongodb status it says 'mongodb stop/waiting' and trying to
run the shell gives Error: couldn't connect to server

I've done a lot of googling and found some supposed solutions but none
of them have worked for me. Most of them seem to revolve around a
permissions problem. I've followed some suggestions/examples of running
chown but that didn't help. The directory I'm trying to use is in my
home folder. I've put some test files in that folder and I can write to

I wonder if any of you have overcome an similar problem and give me some

Thanks, Jim
