So I created a web app on cloud9 using Node.js, mongoDB, express. I set up MongoDB in cloud 9 as per the instructions.
When I completed the app, I deployed it to Heroku, and created a new db in mlab (mongolab). This works fine.
However, I inserted a lot of dummy data into the db hosted on cloud9. I want to copy this dummy data from the db in cloud9 to the db in mlab. How do i do that?
I did some research.
According to mongodb docs, I should use db.copyDatabase():
It says I should run this command in the destination instance, i.e. the instance receiving the copied data.
I’m assuming this means that I should connect to the db hosted on mlab through: mongo dsblahblah.mlab.com:59220/blahblah -u -p
and then run the db.copyDatabase command, correct?
But what should I use for the fromdb parameter? This is the db that is hosted in cloud9. But what is this db’s url?
Help. And ELI5.
