- These instructions are intended for installing MongoDB on a single Fedora 21 node.
- I’ll be working from a Liquid Web Self Managed Fedora 21 server, and I’ll be logged in as root.
Step #1: Add the MongoDB RepositoryFor a refresher on editing files with vim see: New User Tutorial: Overview of the Vim Text Editor
vim /etc/yum.repos.d/mongodb.repoOption A: If you are running a 64-bit system, add the following information to the file you’ve created, using i to insert: [mongodb] name=MongoDB Repository baseurl=http://downloads-distro.mongodb.org/repo/redhat/os/x86_64/ gpgcheck=0 enabled=1 Then exit and save the file with the command :wq . You should see an output very similar to the following image: Option B: If you are running a 32-bit system, add the following information to the file you’ve created, using i to insert: [mongodb] name=MongoDB Repository baseurl=http://downloads-distro.mongodb.org/repo/redhat/os/i686/ gpgcheck=0 enabled=1 Then exit and save the file with the command :wq .
Step #2: Install MongoDBAs a matter of best practice we’ll update our packages:
yum -y updateAt this point, installing MongoDB is as simple as running just one command:
yum -y install mongodb-org mongodb-org-server
Step #3: Get MongoDB RunningStart-Up MongoDB
systemctl start mongodCheck MongoDB Service Status
systemctl status mongodStart the MongoDB Service at Boot
systemctl enable mongodSummary List of Status Statistics (Continuous)
mongostatSummary List of Status Statistics (5 Rows, Summarized Every 2 Seconds)
mongostat --rowcount 5 2Enter the MongoDB Command Line
mongoBy default, running this command will look for a MongoDB server listening on port 27017 on the localhost interface. If you’d like to connect to a MongoDB server running on a different port, then use the –port option. For example, if you wanted to connect to a local MongoDB server listening on port 22222, then you’d issue the following command:
mongo --port 22222Shutdown MongoDB
systemctl stop mongod
