Yesterday I finished a little project to set up a reusable Vagrant box for MongoDB and Perl Mojolicious experiments. That project is okay as it is right now, but I would like to get at MongoDB from the host system.
It is not painfully difficult, but it would be easy for me to forget. That is why I made a post out of it.
Adjust the Vagrantfile so that the MongoDB guest port is forwarded to a host port.
VAGRANTFILE_API_VERSION = "2" Vagrant.configure(VAGRANTFILE_API_VERSION) do |config| # Use Ubuntu 14.04 64 bit config.vm.box = "ubuntu/trusty64" # Install system requirements config.vm.provision "shell", path: "bootstrap/system.sh" # Configure guest services to be accessible on host config.vm.network "forwarded_port", guest: 3000, host: 3000 config.vm.network "forwarded_port", guest: 27017, host: 27017 end
Inside the box, comment out the
bind_ip line from
# Listen to local interface only. Comment out to listen on all interfaces. # bind_ip = 127.0.0.1
$ sudo service mongod restart
Connect to Mongo from the host using whatever interface you prefer. I have been enjoying Robomongo.
