How to Migrate my existing MongoDB database from mlab to Ops Captain


Hi all.

I have enjoyed the process of migrating my MeteorJS app from Galaxy to OpsCaptain hosting. Now how do I migrate the MongoDB database from mlab after moving the Meteor App?



Typically MongoDB comes with two utilities “mongodump” and “mongorestore”.You can basically use the “mongodump” tool to export the database and then use “mongorestore” to import it to OpsCaptain.

Another route is to use the Studio 3T tool. You can check it out here:


Thanks alot. Studio 3T worked like a charm!
