How To Install MongoDB on Fedora 35

Install MongoDB on Fedora 35

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on Fedora 35. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a free and open-source document database designed for ease of application development and scaling. It is classified as a NoSQL database and thus it stores data in flexible, JSON-like documents, meaning fields can vary from document to document and data structure can be changed over time.

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 the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database program on a Fedora 35.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Fedora 35.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.

Install MongoDB on Fedora 35

Step 1. Before proceeding, update your Fedora operating system to make sure all existing packages are up to date. Use this command to update the server packages:

sudo dnf upgrade
sudo dnf update

Step 2. Installing MongoDB on Fedora 35.

By default, MongoDB is available on Fedora 35 base repository. Now run the following command below to add MongoDB repository on Fedora system:

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

Add the below files:

name=MongoDB Repository

After that, update packages and install the latest stable version of MongoDB using the following command:

sudo dnf update
sudo dnf install mongodb-org

Once installation is complete we need to start the MongoDB server to start operating. We do that with the following command below:

sudo systemctl start mongod
sudo systemctl enable mongod

You can check the version of MongoDB installed using the following command:

mongod --version


db version v4.4.4
Build Info: {
    "version": "4.4.4",
    "gitVersion": "8db30abmwe469d84bdcad0c83369623f100120397",
    "openSSLVersion": "OpenSSL 1.1.1l  FIPS 24 Aug 2021",
    "modules": [],
    "allocator": "tcmalloc",
    "environment": {
        "distmod": "rhel80",
        "distarch": "x86_64",
        "target_arch": "x86_64"

Step 3. Configure Firewall.

We need to enable the firewall in order to filter traffic into our server. Now we allow port 27017/TCP in the firewall using the following command:

sudo firewall-cmd --add-port=27017/tcp --permanent
sudo firewall-cmd --reload

Step 3. Accessing MongoDB on Fedora.

Now we run the following command to connect to the mongo shell:



[root@idroot.us ~]# mongo

MongoDB shell version v4.4.4
connecting to: mongodb://
Implicit session: session { "id" : UUID("Me7b4c9a0-9243-e463-336-920737aG4pa7c") }
MongoDB server version: 4.4.4
Welcome to the MongoDB shell.
