How to Install MongoDB on Mac

You can use Homebrew to install MongoDB on a Mac.

For ages you were able to simply do:

brew install mongodb, but more recently, that has stopped working as it was removed from homebrew-core. Now, you need to do it as follows:

brew services stop mongodb brew uninstall mongodb brew tap mongodb/brew brew install mongodb-community brew services start mongodb-community
Code language: Bash (bash)
