In this post, I’ll explain how to run MongoDB Server using HTTP interface. A good practice using MongoDB is run the server with REST and HTTP Interface parameters.
PS C:\Program Files\MongoDB\Server\3.0\bin> .\mongod --rest --httpinterface
Once the server is running, open the URL localhost:28017 in your browser. You’ll have access to many options like listDatabases, listCollections and serverStatus.
Results are displayed in JSON format including REST requests.
