Mongodb Environmental Setup - MongoDB Tutorial

MongoDB Environmental Setup Procedure :

  • In this article, we are going to talk about mongoDB environmental setup. It involves the following:
    • Create the path for the database
    • Create mongoDB service
    • Start the service
    • Stop the service

Step 1 :

  • Check out the below path in your machine. If you don’t have the path, you have to create the folder as such to store mongoDB databases. C:\test\mongodb\data\db


Step 2 :

  • Goto the command prompt and type the directory path of mongoDB using “cd” command “C:\Program Files\MongoDB\Server\5.0\bin”
  • Then enter data store path. Later, execute the mongod.exe waiting for the network configuration port.
cd C:\Program Files\MongoDB\Server\5.0\bin
mongod.exe --dbpath C:test\mongodb\data

Step 3 : What is mongod.exe ?

  • mongod.exe is the build of the MongoDB daemon (i.e. mongod) for the Windows platform.
  • mongod.exe has all the features of mongod on Unix-like platforms and is completely compatible with the other builds of mongod.
  • In addition, mongod.exe provides several options for interacting with the Windows platform itself.

Step 4 - Start the MongoDB service.

  • If you want to Start the MongoDB service give the following command in the command prompt.
net start MongoDB
  • So now the MongoDB services will start successfully.

Step 5 - Stop the MongoDB service.

  • If you want to Stop the MongoDB servicegive the below command in the command terminal.
net stop MongoDB
  • Or, if you want to remove the MongoDB service, use the following command as administrator.
"C:\mongodb\bin\mongod.exe" --remove
