Full Description

MongoDB Dockerfile

A Dockerfile that produces a Docker Image for MongoDB.

MongoDB version

The master branch currently hosts MongoDB 3.0.

Different versions of MongoDB are located at the github repo branches.

Usage

Build the image

To create the image frodenas/mongodb, execute the following command on the docker-mongodb folder:

$ docker build -t frodenas/mongodb .

Run the image

To run the image and bind to host port 27017:

$ docker run -d --name mongodb -p 27017:27017 frodenas/mongodb

If you want also to expose the MongoDB http interface, you will need also to expose port 28017:

$ docker run -d --name mongodb -p 27017:27017 -p 28017:28017 frodenas/mongodb --httpinterface

The first time you run your container, a new user mongo with all privileges will be created with a random password.
To get the password, check the logs of the container by running:

docker logs <CONTAINER_ID>

You will see an output like the following:

========================================================================
MongoDB User: "mongo"
MongoDB Password: "ZMUgiS3O1kJH1ec5"
MongoDB Database: "admin"
MongoDB Role: "dbAdminAnyDatabase"
========================================================================

Credentials

If you want to preset credentials instead of a random generated ones, you can set the following environment variables:

  • MONGODB_USERNAME to set a specific username
  • MONGODB_PASSWORD to set a specific password

On this example we will preset our custom username and password:

$ docker run -d \
    --name mongodb \
    -p 27017:27017 \
    -e MONGODB_USERNAME=myusername \
    -e MONGODB_PASSWORD=mypassword \
    frodenas/mongodb

Databases

If you want to create a database at container's boot time, you can set the following environment variables:

  • MONGODB_DBNAME to create a database
  • MONGODB_ROLE to grant the user a role to the database (by default dbOwner)

On this example we will preset our custom username and password and we will create a database with the default role:

$ docker run -d \
    --name mongodb \
    -p 27017:27017 \
    -e MONGODB_USERNAME=myusername \
    -e MONGODB_PASSWORD=mypassword \
    -e MONGODB_DBNAME=mydb \
    frodenas/mongodb

Extra arguments

When you run the container, it will start the MongoDB server without any arguments. If you want to pass any arguments,
just add them to the run command:

$ docker run -d --name mongodb -p 27017:27017 frodenas/mongodb --smallfiles

Persistent data

The MongoDB server is configured to store data in the /data directory inside the container. You can map the
container's /data volume to a volume on the host so the data becomes independent of the running container:

$ mkdir -p /tmp/mongodb
$ docker run -d \
    --name mongodb \
    -p 27017:27017 \
    -v /tmp/mongodb:/data \
    frodenas/mongodb
