I have installed MongoDB in Ubuntu 14.04 but I am unable to change its storage engine to WiredTiger.
I have added the necessary changes to the /etc/mongod.conf file which is namely as the following-:
storage: dbPath: /var/lib/mongodb journal: enabled: true engine: wiredTiger
I have started the mongod process using the following command-:
mongod - f /etc/mongod.conf
The server starts up but I still get the warning when I connect to my shell-:
2017-01-10T15:36:54.866+0530 I STORAGE [initandlisten] ** WARNING: Using the XFS filesystem is strongly recommended with the WiredTiger storage engine
Am I missing something over here ? The changes seem to have no effect.
