MongoDB Install for MacOS

Install MongoDB

The Easiest Way To Install MongoDB Is To Use A Package Manager or The Pre-Built Binaries:

Package managers

IF you use the homebrew package manager, run:

$ BREW UPDATE

$ BREW Install MongoDB

If you use macports you can install with:

$ Sudo Port Install MongoDB

This Will Take a while to install.

32-bit binaries

NOTE: 64-Bit is Recommended (if You Have A 64-bit System).

$ curl http://downloads.mongodb.org/oSX/mongodb-osx-i386-X.y.z.tgz> Mongo.tgz

$ tar xzf mongo.tgz

Replace x.y.z with the current stable version.

64-bit binaries

$ curl http://downloads.mongodb.org/OSX/mongodb-ox-x86_64-x.y.z.tgz> Mongo.tgz

$ tar xzf mongo.tgz

Replace x.y.z with the current stable version.

Create a Data Directory

By Default MongoDB Will Store Data IN / DATA / DB, But it is’t Automatical Create That Directory. To create it, do:

$ mkdir -p / data / db

You can Also Tell MongoDB to Use A Different Data Directory, with the – dbpath option.

Run and connection to the server

First, Start The MongoDB Server in One Terminal:

$ ./mongodb-xxxxxxx/bin/mongod

In a Separate Terminal, Start The Shell, Which Will Connect To localhost by Default:

$ .mongoDB-xxxxxxx/bin/mongo

> db.foo.save ({a: 1})

> db.foo.find ()

CONGRATULATIONS, You’VE Just Saved and Retrieved Your First Document with MongoDB!
