I have created a one-click droplet with MongoDB. Now I want to set up authentication. I already created users and roles. But I must enable authentication when the process is started and restart the process.
But how exactly is the mongod process started in this one-click app (I don’t want authentication to be disabled if the process needs to be restarted later on)?
I already tried changing the /etc/mongod.conf and rebooting the server (sudo reboot). But it is still possible to login to mongo without specifying a user.
I coud not find anything in the /etc/init.d or in the /etc/systemd/system directories.
This is my mongod.conf:
