📝 Is MongoDB Running? Easy Ways to Check and Keep It Running 🚀
If you have installed MongoDB and PHP drivers on your Unix server and want to check if MongoDB is running, you're in the right place! In this blog post, we'll address common issues and provide easy solutions to ensure MongoDB stays up and running, even after server reboots. Let's dive in! 💪
🔍 Checking the Status of MongoDB To check if MongoDB is running, you can use a simple command line query. Open your terminal and run the following command:
ps -ef | grep [m]ongod
If you see a result containing the word "mongod," MongoDB is running on your server. 🎉
💡 Tip: The square brackets [m] in the
grep command exclude the
grep process itself from the search results.
🔄 Making MongoDB Persistent and Auto Start To make the MongoDB connection persistent and auto start on server reboot, you'll need to create and configure a systemd service unit. Follow the steps below:
Create a new service unit file using your favorite text editor:
sudo nano /etc/systemd/system/mongodb.service
Add the following content to the file:
[Unit] Description=MongoDB Database Server Documentation=man:mongod(1) [Service] ExecStart=/usr/bin/mongod --config /etc/mongod.conf Restart=always User=mongodb Group=mongodb EnvironmentFile=-/etc/default/mongod [Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target
Save the file and exit the text editor.
Start the MongoDB service:
sudo systemctl start mongodb
Enable MongoDB to start on server boot:
sudo systemctl enable mongodb
That's it! MongoDB will now start automatically on server reboot and remain persistent. 🚀
