issue initializing mongod daemon.
Running mongod w/o strictly following the instructions from this guide results in an error.
Yes, following this guide is the only successful approach I’ve seen although I’d recommend not labeling the script mongod so people don’t confuse
From what I have gathered, the error:
t3h2mas:~/workspace $ mongod Error parsing command line: unknown option small try 'mongod --help' for more information
happens because c9 is trying to alias
mongod to some script that uses --smallfiles to better fit in with the workspace constraints.
from what I can see…
mongod from the terminal even with the
--smallfiles argument passed still returns the error. You could specify that the only way to run the mongo daemon is to follow this guide. Or you could alter the broken aliased? script that is providing the broken arguments/opts.
