Question about .bash.profile

In Chapter 2: The MongoDB Query Language + Atlas

Installing the mongo Shell (OSX / Linux)

.bash.profile is already existed in my Mac but this was written for another software, can i still use that one for this lesson or do I need create a new now? please advice.


You will have to use the existing one. It’s also .bash_profile not .bash.profile.

Hi @Brian_26625,

Please refer this post for setting up the mongo shell on your system.

Hope it helps!
