# Mongodb essentials MONGODB_EXEC="/usr/bin/mongod" MONGODB_RUN="/var/run/mongodb" MONGODB_DATA="/var/lib/mongodb" MONGODB_USER="mongodb" # Listen to specified IP, comment this to listen to all MONGODB_IP="127.0.0.1" # Listen to specified port MONGODB_PORT="27017" # Set extra options here, such as disabling the admin web server MONGODB_OPTIONS="--journal"
