How do I restart mongodb?
I installed mongoldb using the one-click installer. I changed the config bind-ip and commented it out (to allow it to accept any connection). Then I wanted to restart to make the changes take effect, so I did the following:
root@mongo:~# mongo MongoDB shell version: 3.0.0 connecting to: test > use admin switched to db admin > db.shutdownServer();
Then I expected it to try and reconnect, however this happened:
