MongoDB is a very powerful resource and fast NoSQL database. As for the repositories on Debian, they update very slowly and often contain outdated versions of packages. This article’ll work for both x86 and x64 architectures, but note that MongoDB works best on 64-bit architectures.
Update the package repository
\Before installing MongoDB, you need to make sure everything is up to date. This can be done by running the following command accordingly:
There may be the following message stating that “package management tool” is not available, type Y, press Enter to continue. You can run pkg update -f a forced update if needed. If unsuccessful, go to step 2 – Installing MongoDB
Install MongoDB using the following command:
pkg install mongodb
Start and Test The Installation of MongoDB
Check your MongoDB installation. This command will start the service:
service mongod onestart
The consol’ll look loke this:
MongoDB shell version: 4.4 connecting to: test Welcome to the MongoDB shell. For interactive help, type "help". For more comprehensive documentation, see http://docs.mongodb.org/ Questions? Try the support group http://groups.google.com/group/mongodb-user
Turn the MongoDB at each boot
If you don’t want to use “onestart” to start Mongo on boot, you can configure it to run start instead. To do this, you need to edit /etc/rc.conf. with vi or any other text editor and add mongod_enable = “YES” to the file. Once finished, it will start when your server boots up and you can now use its service mongod start to start the Mongo service. Other service commands such as stop and status will also be available.
