single instance mongodb for dev purposes.. generic enough to be used for other purposes..

uses mongodb 2.6+

only installs mongodb-org-server and mongodb-org-mongos

how to use

create a local directory for configs and dbs

mkdir -p {somedir}/data/db {somedir}/data/etc`

create a config file without auth

vi {somedir}/data/db/mongod.conf

that has at least the following contents

noauth = true

dbpath = /data/db

start a container with a mounted data dir

docker run -d -p 27017:27017 -p 28017:28017 -v {somedir}/data/:/data/ --name yourcontainername lapax/mongodb

connect to the daemon using your local mongo shell (make sure the versions match) and create a user admin role - see

stop the container

docker stop yourcontainername

edit the mongod config file to enable authentication by changing noauth=true to auth=true

auth = true

dbpath = /data/db

restart the container

docker start yourcontainername

connect via mongo shell using user admin role created and create normal users - see


options to start in master mode, slave mode, sharded mode with mongos etc.. although this can be done via passing the right commands to run during docker run
