MongoDB

Introduction

Uniform Server MongoDB Standalone extracts MongoDB server and associated files. Extracted files are portable meaning you can copy the main folder and all its content to a USB memory stick and run the server from their.

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

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

Note 1: When challenged by your firewall always grant Internet access

Note 2: This server runs as a standard program and not as a service.

It is for development only do not use for a production server!

 "One valid way to run the Mongo database is in a trusted environment, with no
 security and authentication.  This is the default option and is recommended.
 Of course, in such a configuration, one must be sure only trusted machines can
 access databases TCP ports."

For a production server use either of these:

Clean up

When you have finished playing you probably will want to clean up and start afresh.

  1. Close MongoDB – Click "Stop MongoDB" button
  2. Navigate to folder: mongodb_1\data\mongodb
  3. Delete its contents. Removing all databases created effectively gives you a clean install.

Alternative control

If you prefer to use batch files take a look in folder alt_control

Files:

Run_start_mongo.bat  - Run MongoDB server hidden
Run_stop_mongo.bat   - Cleanly stop MongoDB server
Run_client.bat       - Directly runs mongo-client
Run_cmd.bat          - Opens a command window changes to bin folder allowing
                       you to run MongoDB's command line tools

Summary

Running MongoDB is as simple as the above.

Hey! Don’t like the control interface, change it; MongoDB Tutorial 1 provides details.
