OPTIONS

connect()

connect(<hostname><:port>/<database>)

The connect() method creates a connection to a MongoDB instance. However, use the Mongo() object and its getDB() method in most cases.

connect() accepts a string <hostname><:port>/<database> parameter to connect to the MongoDB instance on the <hostname><:port> and return the reference to the database <database>.

The following example instantiates a new connection to the MongoDB instance running on the localhost interface and returns a reference to myDatabase:

db = connect("localhost:27017/myDatabase")
