I have set up a new VPS via Digital Ocean and have installed MongoDB V4.2.8 on an Ubuntu server 18.04 release as per the official Mongo documentation. I'm using Compass version 1.21.2.

I have managed to bind the inbound and outbound IP addresses as well as configure the admin account for the database. However, when attempting to contact the database through Compass I am receiving the error

"An error occurred while loading navigation: Attempted to use Snappy compression, but Snappy is not installed. Install or disable Snappy compression and try again. "

Image of Error within Compass

As a shot in the dark, I then went and installed the snappy package from npm globally but this hasn't helped.

Anything I can do to fix this?
