Importing a dumped MongoDB database
- Cmd to the path where you placed your dump folder
- Make sure that mongo server is running an execute the following command:
Now, wait a moment while the database is restored:
A couple of things to keep mind:
- As we said at the beginning remember to position yourself in the dump folder before running mongorestore (otherwise you will have to specify the location of the dump as a switch)
- mongorestore must run from the O.S CLI not from inside the mongodb shell.
And that´s all 🙂
