How do you rename a MongoDB database



Even I did not find any command to rename database directly.

To rename database please track  following steps.
1- Copy your old database to new renamed database.
    db.copyDatabase("db_old","db_new_renamed","localhost")
2- Select old database using USE key.
    use db_old
3-  Drop Old Database
     db.dropDatabase();
