To start MongoDB in Linux, follow these steps:

  1. Open a terminal window.
  2. Change to the MongoDB bin directory by typing the following command:
1
cd /path/to/mongodb/bin


  1. Start the MongoDB server by typing the following command:
1
./mongod


  1. The MongoDB server will start and run in the background. You can check the status of the server by typing:
1
./mongo


This will open the MongoDB shell, which you can use to interact with the MongoDB server.


If you want to start the MongoDB server as a daemon, you can use the following command:

1
./mongod --fork


This will start the MongoDB server in the background and return control to the terminal. You can check the status of the server by looking at the log files in the /var/log/mongodb directory.


Note: The exact location of the MongoDB bin directory may vary depending on how you installed MongoDB.

To start MongoDB on Linux, you can follow these steps:

  1. Open a terminal window.
  2. Navigate to the MongoDB installation directory. The default installation directory is /usr/local/mongodb, but it may vary depending on your specific installation.
  3. Start MongoDB by running the following command: ./mongod This will start the MongoDB server, and it will start listening for connections on the default port 27017.


By default, MongoDB will store its data files in the /data/db directory. Make sure this directory exists and that the user running the mongod command has the necessary read and write permissions.


You can also specify a custom data directory or change other configurations by using command-line options. For example, to specify a different data directory, you can use the --dbpath option:

1
./mongod --dbpath /path/to/data/directory


Additionally, you may need to start the MongoDB service on Linux, depending on your distribution. The steps to do this may vary, but on systems using systemd, you can use the following commands:

1
sudo systemctl start mongod


Replace start with stop or restart to respectively stop or restart the MongoDB service.
