We have to deal with two files here :
  1. Mongo     (the database shell)
  2. Mongod   (the core database server)

Also, Before you can start the MongoDB service, you need to create a data directory for MongoDB to store its files in.By default, MongoDB stores the data in the /data/db directory on Unix-based systems (e.g.,

Open your command prompt and go to the bin directory , write mongod and hit enter :

Now open the second instance of the command prompt , go to the bin directory and write mongo :

Done !!
