Node.js Question

How do I know my web service provider supports mongodb?

I want to set up an angular2 site using Nodejs and for db I read that mongodb is really good. Now before I install it even locally, how do I know that my website service provider supports it? Or is installing it as simple as copy/pasting the db folder/filer to ftp?

(My provider: https://www.zone.ee/en/)

Answer

If you have root access to the machine you're hosting on (like if you can run commands from the command-line such as node and npm) then chances are you can install mongoDB no problem. You may want to ask your provider, though.

MongoDB is great, but you can always get around the need for it by using plain-old JSON...
