How to install Mongodb in CentOS?

MongoDB is a Free and open-source cross-platform document-oriented database program. Classified as a NoSQL database program, MongoDB avoids the traditional table-based relational database structure in favor of JSON-like documents with dynamic schemas, making the integration of data in certain types of applications easier and faster.

  1. Login into your VPS via ssh

  2. Create mongodb repository file using an editor as below.

    nano /etc/yum.repos.d/mongodb.repo

    Mongodb Respitory

  3. If you are running a 64-bit system, add the below information to the file you have created.

    [mongodb]

    name=MongoDB Repository

    gpgcheck=0

    enabled=1
