Install MongoDB on macOS

In this tutorial, I will show you all how we can install MongoDB on macOS.

First of all, we need download the MongoDB binary file. To do that, you can go to the download page of MongoDB at https://www.mongodb.com/download-center?jmp=nav#community and choose latest version of MongoDB for macOS.

Currently, the version of MongoDB is 3.6.3.

The filename should be mongodb-osx-ssl-x86_64-3.6.3.tgz.

This is .tgz file, so you can use the tar command to extract this file.

After extracting, you should see the folder mongodb-osx-x86_64-3.6.3 with the content as below:

All necessary files of MongoDB are contained in the bin folder. Here, we have mongo file to connect to MongoDB server, and mongod file to start a MongoDB server.

When running, MongoDB needs a folder to store the data. By default, this folder will be located at /data/db. You should create this folder before starting the MongoDB.

You can change this default folder to another folder by using the –dbpath option to pass the path of the folder when starting the MongoDB server.

Make sure the folder, which will be used by MongoDB, has all permission to read, write.

In this tutorial, I will use the custom folder to start the MongoDB server. I created the folder at /Users/Khanh/MongoDB/data/db.

So, the command to start MongoDB will be:
