Continuing the discussion from Connecting to Mongodb:
I see there’s an installation of Mongo 2.6.10 available to my app, and have been able to get it running with a database in the .data directory… any plans to keep that Mongo installation up to date with the latest stable version? Should I be concerned about it disappearing without notice?
$ mongo --version MongoDB shell version: 2.6.10 $ mongod --version db version v2.6.10
Why care about the “built-in” mongo?
First, it makes my app much more remixable when the db is created on-the-fly without needing to provide additional credentials. I also can’t find any place that provides free/cheap mongo where traffic is encrypted (mLab doesn’t offer SSL until the dedicated tier)
