I would like to make mongodb accessible from other clients but I can’t find how.
I have two Meteor JS applications on two different machines and different IP, and I want to connect the second application to the first MONGODB database.
Could you tell me how to do that?
Thank you in advance.
Hello there, I did exactly that once, here is how it works:
- Create two seperate meteor apps. Let’s say that App1 hosts the database, and App2 doesn’t make it’s own db, but uses the one from App1, ok?
- Run App1 normally. It will run your db usually under
mongodb://localhost:3001/. Now we wanna connect to this db with the other app.
- Open a second terminal to run App2. Before running App2 set in that console it’s MONGO_URL env variable to the db from App1:
export MONGO_URL=mongodb://localhost:3001/meteor. Check that it is set correctly
- Run App2 under a new port (since port 3000 runs App1):
meteor --port 3002.
So that’s how to do it locally during development. If you are using mup for deploying to production, have a look at this: http://meteor-up.com/docs.html#multiple-apps-use-the-same-database
Sorry for the late response. Thank you for ur help
