Meteor – Connect to external MongoDB

If you start a new Meteor app, it would initialize a local MongoDB instance. If you want to use a remote one. Add the MONGO_URL environmental variable before you start the Meteor app. Ex:

MONGO_URL = "mongodb://[username]:[password]@[host]:[port]/[db]"


Done =)
