1. Introduction

By default Laragon, comes with MySQL installed. But adding MongoDB is easy.

Use Laragons build-in Quick Add option to install MongoDB.

2. Notice

Be sure your Windows 10 (64 bit) OS has the latest Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015-2019 installed.

3. What about the data?

This procedure will install MongoDB into your Laragon installation.
A new folder \LARAGON\data\mongodb\ wil be created.
It will not touch the existing MySQL or MariaDB databases.

Because MySQL/MariaDB uses port 3306 and MongoDB uses port 27017, both database systems can coexist at the same time.

This means you can export and import your data to migrate between database systems.
