MongoDB Dockerfile

Forked from dockerfile/mongodb, but works on top of debian instead of Ubuntu.
This makes for a slimmer Docker image.

This repository contains Dockerfile of MongoDB for Docker's automated build published to the public Docker Hub Registry.

Base Docker Image



  1. Install Docker.

  2. Download automated build from public Docker Hub Registry: docker pull dockerfile/mongodb

    (alternatively, you can build an image from Dockerfile: docker build -t="dockerfile/mongodb"


Run mongod

docker run -d -p 27017:27017 --name mongodb dockerfile/mongodb

Run mongod w/ persistent/shared directory

docker run -d -p 27017:27017 -v <db-dir>:/data/db --name mongodb dockerfile/mongodb

Run mongod w/ HTTP support

docker run -d -p 27017:27017 -p 28017:28017 --name mongodb dockerfile/mongodb mongod --rest --httpinterface

Run mongod w/ Smaller default file size

docker run -d -p 27017:27017 --name mongodb dockerfile/mongodb mongod --smallfiles

Run mongo

docker run -it --rm --link mongodb:mongodb dockerfile/mongodb bash -c 'mongo --host mongodb'
Usage with VirtualBox (boot2docker-vm)

You will need to set up nat port forwarding with:

VBoxManage modifyvm "boot2docker-vm" --natpf1 "guestmongodb,tcp,,27017,,27017"

This will allow you to connect to your mongo container with the standard mongo commands.
