How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 8

Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 8

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 8. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is an open-source, cross-platform, document-oriented database management system. MongoDB features include full index support, replication, high availability, and auto-sharding. It is cross-platform and it makes the process of data integration faster and much easier. Since it is free and open-source, MongoDB is used by a number of websites and organizations.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you through the step-by-step installation of MongoDB NoSQL database management on an AlmaLinux 8. You can follow the same instructions for Rocky Linux.

Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 8

Step 1. First, let’s start by ensuring your system is up-to-date.

sudo dnf update
sudo dnf install epel-release

Step 2. Installing MongoDB on AlmaLinux 8.

Now we add the MongoDB repository to your system:

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

And the following line and save the file:

[mongodb-org-4.4] name=MongoDB Repository
baseurl=https://repo.mongodb.org/yum/redhat/$releasever/mongodb-org/4.4/x86_64/
gpgcheck=1
enabled=1
gpgkey=https://www.mongodb.org/static/pgp/server-4.4.asc

Next, install the latest stable version of MongoDB using the following command:

sudo dnf install mongodb-org

When the installation finishes, start and enable the MongoDB service with the commands:

sudo systemctl start mongod
sudo systemctl enable mongod

Step 3. Accessing MongoDB on AlmaLinux.

Like with Ubuntu, to access the MongoDB shell, issue the command:

mongo

Output:

[[email protected] ~]# mongo
