Best Solution

Make sure you created the /data/db at the root. otherwise, do the simple steps.

For Mac or Linux user

1 - first open the terminal as root.

sudo bash

2 - make db folder

mkdir -p /data/db

3 - give the chmod 777 to the directory.

chmod 777 /data
chmod 777 /data/db

4 - confirm the /data/db is 777

ls -ld /data/db

5 - exit the root shell

6 - run the mongod cmd at mongodb_path/bin directory.

mongod

make sure it is listing port. By default, it listens to the 27017 port.

7- open the new terminal window and run the mongo cmd at mongodb_path/bin directory.
