This is a supplemental post to the previous tutorial to add in session handling into Mongo. You may have noticed after the last tutorial that when running the code in production you are alerted that Connect does not recommend the use of in-memory session storage for productions systems.
Now that we have a working website model with error pages and some useful content the next step is to connect to a database so that we can later administer the content of the website and store it in the database.
For this tutorial we are going to setup a simple login system into mongo with the help of mongoose. In the next tutorial add in the blog posts to the database.
The next step for coding a website (for me) is to setup the error and 404 pages. The 404 page to be used to display something useful to the user when something cannot be found. A nice error page can also be helpful in debugging and for informing the general public that an error has occurred on your website.
