Run mongodb

Create a file mongod.service under /etc/systemd/system/.

Description=MongoDB Database Server

ExecStart=/usr/bin/mongod --quiet --bind_ip_all --dbpath /home/ubuntu/data/db


Without –bind_ip_all, you cannot access mongodb cross internet.

sudo systemctl status mongod


mongodb.service - High-performance, schema-free document-oriented database
   Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/mongodb.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)
   Active: active (running) since Mon 2016-04-25 14:57:20 EDT; 1min 30s ago
 Main PID: 4093 (mongod)
    Tasks: 16 (limit: 512)
   Memory: 47.1M
      CPU: 1.224s
   CGroup: /system.slice/mongodb.service
           └─4093 /usr/bin/mongod --quiet --bind_ip_all --dbpath /home/ubuntu/data/db
