Two Meteor applications, just one database


Is it ok to have two Meteor applications connected to just one Mongo database? for example to have a public application to final users but have a separate internal application for administrative purposes but both connected to the same Mongo database. Is there any conflict with that?


Nope! It is perfectly fine.

In fact, if you don’t want to connect directly to the db, but instead reuse your server-side methods, you can take a look at and evidently @acemtp has just posted a great write up about this subject at


Thank you! I really appreciate the information :slight_smile:
