Tech Demo | Set up MongoDB

1. Install MongoDB

Download and install MongoDB. In this tech demo we’ll install it the default folder:

C:/Program Files/MongoDB/Server4.4/bin/

We’ll use this folder as our base folder for the techdemo

c:/files/techdemo/

Create a script to launch MongoDB. Call it run-mongo.bat and store it in the above folder. This is the script contents.

C:/Program Files/MongoDB/Server4.4/bin/mongod --dbpath=c:/files/techdemo/data

Run it to make sure it works.

2. Create a Tech demo database

Run MongoDB Compass. This is one of the apps distributed with MongoDB in the MongoDB download

 Connect to the MongoDB server. Click CONNECT

 

Click CREATE DATABASE

 

Enter ‘techdemo-orders’ in the Database Name field, and ‘orders’ in the Collection Name field. If you haven’t used MongoDB, then a collection is like a table in a SQL database.

Click CREATE DATABASE

Do this again, but use ‘techdemo-warehouse’, and ‘stock’ to create another database and collection.
