I've installed MongoDB and I am getting stuck with the following errors:

When I execute "mongo" I get logged into the shell

When I execute "mongodb" I get the following errors:

 2016-06-23T22:58:39.302+0000 I CONTROL  [initandlisten] MongoDB starting : pid=7221 port=27017 dbpath=/data/db 64-bit host=debian

Can someone suggest that what is the difference between two terminal commands: mongo as a first, and mongodb as a second?

I am using MongoDB because it is great for my project as it is schema-less.

Thanks in advance.

For connecting to the mongodb server, you have to first get connected to the localhost 27017. So for connecting to the localhost, we will first run the mongod exe file. It is the deamon of mongodb which handles all the data requests and manages the access of the data and performs the background management operations. Then after connecting to the mongo server then we will run the mongo exe file for performing various operations in MongoDB

If you want to learn more about MongoDB then go through this MongoDB course for more insights.
