Copy MongoDB database from remote host to your machine

You can use the mongo console to copy the database from one host (machine) to another host (machine). It is usually helpful when we are copying large database.

Start the mongo console

  1. by typing command “mongo”
  2. run following commands to copy database
    use admin
    db.runCommand({
       copydb: 1,
       fromdb: "test",
       todb: "records",
       fromhost: "example.net"
    })
