Databases Mongo Basics Getting Started With MongoDB Review: Setting Up Mongo

What does posts stand for

In mongo

1 Answer

It's not a Mongo-specific thing, it's just asking what it means when it's placed after the db. in a command in the Mongo shell.

For a hint, if this were a relational database, it would be db.table, but Mongo calls 'tables' something else. In this case, posts is the name of that particular instance of a structure in the Mongo database.
