Will describe myself as infrastructure-challenged. My SQL experience did not prepare me for VM. Hoping a kind soul will explain. Made it through 001, 103 and 201 - not a problem with Mongo per se - but still don’t have a handle on this infrastructure:
(vagrant was already installed no issues)
normal (Win10)command prompt:
- I had made the M310 folder and put the handout folder in it…so from there:
vagrant up --provision database
$ vagrant ssh database
- brings me to prompt:
so here is where I am lost. where is this? in one of the 2 VMs installed for this course I say to myself…
to make directories i.e. /data/db …do I begin here?
…with / symbol ?
to put/use a config file … do I put it here in a folder?
if not - please do explain - hopefully you see once in vm-land my point of reference is confused …
vm-database is a pc nested inside my pc? and this prompt is the root starting point?..
…the ‘why’ you do it the way it is to be done is key for me…be gentle…
related I’ll add: * why/when ‘sudo’ …
* PC to VM1 to VM2 - -what allows move from world to world…
