I want to change the mongodb database directory. Some says that I need to change the owner of the new directory to the username that is running mongodb
How do I know which user is running the mongodb service?
Well I suppose I just look at all the processes and see who own those processes.
How do I see the running processes.
I run the answer and get this. Looks like the user is mongodb. Not ubuntu, not root, but mongodb
root@ip-10-138-30-205:/media/newdrive# ps -aux | grep mongodb Warning: bad ps syntax, perhaps a bogus '-'? See http://procps.sf.net/faq.html mongodb 17140 0.3 5.2 131484 31832 ?
