Are you looking to create a MongoDB database in your Hostinger shared hosting account? You’ve come to the right place! In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of setting up a MongoDB database in your Hostinger shared hosting environment.
Step 1: Accessing cPanel
The first step is to log in to your Hostinger account and access the cPanel dashboard. Once you’re logged in, scroll down to the ‘Hosting’ section and click on ‘Manage’ next to your shared hosting plan.
On the next page, you will find the ‘cPanel’ button. Click on it to access the cPanel dashboard.
Step 2: Locating the MongoDB Installer
Once you’re in the cPanel dashboard, scroll down to the ‘Databases’ section and look for the ‘MongoDB Installer’ icon. Click on it to proceed.
Step 3: Creating a MongoDB Database
In the MongoDB Installer, you will see an option to create a new MongoDB database. Click on the ‘Create New MongoDB Database’ button to begin the setup process.
Next, you will need to provide a name for your database. Choose a unique and descriptive name that will help you identify it easily.
After entering the database name, click on the ‘Create’ button to create the database.
Step 4: Managing Your MongoDB Database
Once your database is created, you can manage it using the ‘Manage’ button in the MongoDB Installer. From here, you can view details about your database, create collections, add users, and perform other administrative tasks.
Step 5: Connecting to Your MongoDB Database
To connect to your MongoDB database, you will need to use a MongoDB client. There are several options available, including MongoDB Compass, Studio 3T, and the MongoDB shell.
Each client has its own way of connecting to the database, but generally, you will need to provide the connection details such as the hostname, port number, database name, username, and password.
Creating a MongoDB database in Hostinger shared hosting is a straightforward process. By following the steps outlined in this tutorial, you can easily set up and manage a MongoDB database for your website or application.
Remember to always keep your database secure by using strong passwords and regularly updating your MongoDB version to the latest stable release.
