Upgrading the MongoDB server version

By default, your MongoDB server is created running the 3.0.11 binary with RocksDB storage engine. You can change the version of your server at anytime with minimal downtime. A restart of the server is required to complete the upgrade process.

Once you have upgraded the server to a higher version, you cannot downgrade to the previous version.

  • 2. Select the required version from the "Upgrade to" dropdown.
