I have been blogging a lot about OpenShift recently because I’m finding it a really useful PaaS for rapid development.

One issue that I have come across is connecting to mongodb on OpenShift using my local machine. Luckily, there is a really simple fix.

Get the mongodb connection details using

{style="font-family: Arial, Verdana; font-size: 10pt; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: normal; line-height: normal;"} rhc app-show NAMEOFYOURAPP

then set up port forwarding on your local machine

{style="font-family: Arial, Verdana; font-size: 10pt; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: normal; line-height: normal;"} rhc port-forward NAMEOFYOURAPP

you should see something similar to the following which you can connect to mongodb using

mongodb 127.0.0.1:46716 =>
