MongoDB Installation Procedure

Today this post will help you to install MongoDB in Windows 32 bit environment.

  • Just download the required mongodb installation package or .msi from Official MongoDB site where you will get the latest version.
  • Then manually create db folder in c:\ drive like


  • Go to mongodb installed path from there you open command prompt then type

    C:\Program Files\MongoDB\Server\3.2\bin>mongod

  • if successful then there you can find

    I NETWORK  [initandlisten] waiting for connections on port 27017

  • if you face anything kind of issues like “Exception initAndListen” and MongoDB can not start server… then you can do as given below instructions.
  • C:\Program Files\MongoDB\Server\3.2\bin>mongod –storageEngine=mmapv1  –dbpath C:\data\db

    The above line depicts to map the db folder.

  • Yay. Then there you can go!!! Finally you will get the “waiting for connections message”.
  • If you want to see your available databases in locally, then  use the below command by keep opening the already existing command prompt.
  • C:\Users\srini>mongo                                                                                                             Message will be :  MongoDB shell version: 3.2.3                                                                                                      connecting to: test                                                                                                                          Welcome to the MongoDB shell.

  • Again if you face issue like “mongo” is not recognized as an external or internal command, then time to set the Environment variable to Path.
  • Go to Control Panel -> System and Security – > Advanced Settings-> Environment Variable-> select Path and Edit to add

  • “;C:\Program Files\MongoDB\Server\3.2\bin\”   click ok.
