Comment (by TheDigitalOrchard):


 Running `sudo port unload mongodb` was not stopping the `mongod` process,
 which I found unusual. This is even after a complete reboot of the system.

 Manually stopping the process and then running `sudo port load mongodb'
 restarted the process, and all existing databases were available once

 I've seen this happen before. I previously had a Homebrew installation of
 MongoDB installed (due to the MacPorts version crashing), but I believe
 that I had uninstalled this HomeBrew version. Maybe it stuck around and
 that's why the database directory is different? I'll investigate that

 For now, the databases are back again, so that's good.
