Introduction

MongoDB Standalone Production installs MongoDB server.

A Windows interface is provided allowing you to start and stop MongoDB server. From this interface you can start either the mongo-client or a cmd prompt. These allow you to administer mongo-databases.

From the drop-down menus you can create and delete databases in addition you can assign and delete users for a database.

Production in this context is referring to authenticated access. All databases are assigned a user name and user password. Creating a database you are forced to provide a name and password.

The Admin database is pre-configured with a name and password of root and root respectively.

First task after installation is to change the Admin default password.

Independent operation is achieved using a single binary (PHP 5.3.2 compiled with common extensions including new WinBinder with UTF-8 support) extracted from phpack v0.7.5 see Winbinder forum for details. The dll is located in phpack basic stubs folder.

Run

Start Windows interface

Double click on file Run_MongoDB.exe located in folder mongodb_1.

  • I hate nag pop-ups however this one is very important.
  • Always close MongoDB before turning your PC off
  • It needs to perform a clean up to maintain data integrity.

The nag pop-up can be infuriating hence click no not to display it again at next start up.

Note: If you want to restore the nag pop-up delete the following file:

mongodb_1\control\no_nag.txt
