When I try to run the mongod.service via
service mongod start MongoDB tells me that it can’t find database files on
/data/db weird thing is in my configuration file dbPath is specifically specified as
/var/lib/mongodb. mongod service configuration under /lib/systemd/system/mongod.service uses /etc/mongod.conf and that config file specifies
/var/lib/mongodb/ like I described above.
Here comes the even weirder part;
When I try to run the mongodb via service it fails but when I try to run it via shell like
mongod --config /etc/mongod.conf it runs without a problem.
