Unable to update Mongo Path environment variable

Unable to update Mongo Path.

I am using Catalina and there was no .bash_profile in the machine so I created one with below text:

export PATH=“~/mongodb-macos-x86_64-enterprise-4.2.1/bin:$PATH”

Existing PATH value:

Even after quitting terminal I still see the old PATH. Don’t see the bash profile impacting the PATH variable. I do not know where else I need to update the PATH.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Shubham,

Thank you! That just worked perfect! Happy learning indeed!

I now see below:

When I login to mongo I see below:

$ mongo --nodb
