    Here is the solution :

    Initially need to spin up meteor. Then if you run

    meteor mongo

    You will get an output like this:

    MongoDB shell version: 2.2.1

    connecting to:

        Meteor db host is at with a port of 3001. Exit the mongo shell and use mongodump from your terminal.

    mongodump -h --port 3001 -d meteor

    Dumps will be located under the dumps folder in the folder you executed the above command.

    You can import your db back to meteor with

    mongorestore -h --port 3001 -d meteor dump/meteor

    Try also this,

    1. To use to backup a meteor application DB deployed to follow these steps:

    Be sure you are log in into your meteor dev account and generate a temporary connection link:

    $ cd yourapp
    $ meteor login
    $ meteor mongo --url

    You’ll get something like:

    mongodb://client-ID:[email protected]:27017/yourapp_meteor_com


    2.Create a backup using mongodump command (

    $ mongodump -h --port 27017 --username client-ID --password password-3be8-f6c5-50a9-password -d yourapp_meteor_com

    This backup the entire remote database into a default dump/ folder.


    3.If ever you need to import the db into local meteor mongo DB, start a mongo shell:

    $ meteor mongo
    MongoDB shell version: 2.4.9
    connecting to:

    and in another terminal use mongorestore command

    $ mongorestore --port 3001
