I’ve seen that you are recommending to create MongoDB data folder at the root of the filesystem: How to Clone and Setup the freeCodeCamp Website on a Mac
I don’t think this is a good practice as you are creating a new system-wide folder just for freeCodeCamp’s project.
I would like to suggest to just create a
data folder inside the freeCodeCamp base folder and then run mongod as
mongod --dbpath=data from inside freeCodeCamp.
What do you think? How can I propose a change to the guide?
