Even with Homebrew, MongoDB can still distribute its own source. It's just that MonboDB doesn't belong in the same store aisle that they used to be in. People are only getting ticked that MongoDB is trying to position itself as some kind of open source savior, that its advocating that MongoDB should still be allowed into the recipe-included bakery chain, even though it's not following the same rules. Installing HOMEBREW and MONGODB on a Mac. First off what is Homebrew? Homebrew is the ‘so called’ missing package manager for a Mac. Linux folks who use Redhat and Ubuntu are used to installing things with yum and other package managers.

1. Install Homebrew

Homebrew is a Package Manager for macOS/Linux.
Go to https://brew.sh/ and find a command for installing Homebrew and run in your Terminal prompt.

Install MongoDB using Homebrew by running the following command in a terminal: 1 $ brew install mongodb. Running MongoDB after you’ve installed it via Homebrew. Now that you’ve installed MongoDB via Homebrew you can run it via the Terminal. Open up the Terminal program on your mac or whatever shell you’re comfortable with and start the. The data directory path: /usr/local/var/mongodb; To run mongod as a service, brew services start mongodb-community. To stop the server, brew services stop mongodb-community. It uses the default conf file and paths for mongodb and the log. To verify that MongoDB has started successfully: ps aux grep -v grep grep mongod. To connect and use. Homebrew complements macOS (or your Linux system). Install your RubyGems with gem and their dependencies with brew. “To install, drag this icon” no more. Homebrew Cask installs macOS apps, fonts and plugins and other non-open source software.

/usr/bin/ruby -e '$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)”

(optional)Install node js with brew by the line below if you need:brew install node

2. Setup a custom Homebrew tap and install mongo

Add a custom tap: brew tap mongodb/brew
And install mongo: brew install mongodb-community

Homebrew will create the conf file and paths below as defaults.

  • the configuration file: /usr/local/etc/mongod.conf
  • the log directory path: /usr/local/var/log/mongodb
  • the data directory path: /usr/local/var/mongodb

To run mongod as a service, brew services start mongodb-community.
To stop the server, brew services stop mongodb-community.

It uses the default conf file and paths for mongodb and the log.

To verify that MongoDB has started successfully: ps aux grep -v grep grep mongod

To connect and use MongoDB, open a new Terminal and run mongo. MongoDB shell is now up and running!

- Troubleshooting errors for beginners and macOS Catalina

If you get the exception similar to below, you will need to create a directory for mongo data with following command: sudo mkdir -p /data/db

exception in initAndListen: NonExistentPath: Data directory /data/db not found., terminating

BUT you might get the another error, mkdir: /data/db: Read-only file system. That might be because you are using macOS Catalina.

Starting with macOS 10.15 Catalina, Apple restricts access to the MongoDB default data directory of /data/db. On macOS 10.15 Catalina, you must use a different data directory, such as /usr/local/var/mongodb.
https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT210650

Since you cannot create directories in root system, create the db directory with sudo mkdir -p /Users/YOUR_USER_NAME/data/db.

Tip: Find out your username by running this command:whoami

And create the log directory: sudo mkdir -p /Users/jadekim/data/log/db

Then run mongod manually by setting up the db and log path with following command.

mongod --dbpath=/Users/jadekim/data/db --logpath=/Users/jadekim/data/log/db/mongo.log

But you might still get another error.

exception in initAndListen: IllegalOperation: Attempted to create a lock file on a read-only directory: /Users/jadekim/data/db, terminating

We need to set permissions for the data and log directories: sudo chown -Rv YOUR_USER_NAME /Users/YOUR_USER_NAME/data/db

In my case: sudo chown -Rv jadekim /Users/jadekim/data/db

Finally, you can run mongod successfully!

mongod --dbpath=/Users/jadekim/data/db --logpath=/Users/jadekim/data/log/db/mongo.log

Open a new Terminal and run mongo.
