Installing MongoDB as a Service on Windows

Tags: MongoDB

I was a little surprised that MongoDB doesn't install itself as a windows service when you run the installation package.  So here's a command to install it as a service.  It will be set to startup type Automatic.

mongod --dbpath "C:\mongo_data" --logpath "C:\mongo_log\log.txt" --install


The dbpath and logpath are up to you.  Run this as an administrator.  You will have to manually start the service after you run the command.  Go Mongo!
