How To Install MongoDB On Centos

Last updated on March 3rd, 2022 at 05:14 pm

Installing MongoDB & Check what version of MongoDB is installed on your system.

This is a 7 year old tutorial and 2.6 version is end of life https://www.mongodb.com/blog/post/mongodb-2-6-end-of-life

That being said you can follow this documentation to install https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/tutorial/install-mongodb-on-red-hat/

I am going to leave the tutorial below as is just for any reference. This is outdated and follow mongodb official documentation. I don’t want to just copy paste the content from their website.


We have to also find out whether your OS is 32-bit or 64-bit linux system. Issue the following command.

#uname -m
x86_64


I am using 64-BIT Operating System for this demo. Make sure you are logged in as root 🙂

Create a /etc/yum.repos.d/mongodb.repo file to hold the following configuration for MongoDB

Use VI editor and add any of the below configuration details according to your machine type.

If you are running a 64-bit system, use the following configuration:

[mongodb]
name=MongoDB Repository
baseurl=http://downloads-distro.mongodb.org/repo/redhat/os/x86_64/
gpgcheck=0
enabled=1


If you are running a 32-bit system, use the following configuration:

[mongodb]
name=MongoDB Repository
baseurl=http://downloads-distro.mongodb.org/repo/redhat/os/i686/
gpgcheck=0
enabled=1

To install the latest stable version of MongoDB, issue the following command:

yum install mongodb-org


To install a specific release of MongoDB, append the version number to the package name, as in the following example that installs the 2.7.8 release of MongoDB:

yum install mongodb-org-2.6.8

Once you start MongoDB, Issue this command to find the version.

> db.version()
2.6.8
>


You can find lot of other tutorials in the internet for installing MongoDB on Linux / Unix systems but I have never seen any which explains both 32-bit and 64-bit installation methods. If you find this tutorial helpful please LIKE us on Facebook 🙂
