How To Install MongoDB on Fedora 39

Install MongoDB on Fedora 39

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on Fedora 39. MongoDB, a leading NoSQL database, has revolutionized the way data is stored and accessed in the modern tech world. Its document-oriented structure, scalability, and flexibility make it a preferred choice for many developers and businesses.

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 database on a Fedora 39.


Before diving into the installation process, let’s ensure that you have everything you need:

  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Fedora 39.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • You will need access to the terminal to execute commands. Fedora 39 provides the Terminal application for this purpose. It can be found in your Applications menu.
  • You’ll need an active internet connection to download MongoDB and its dependencies.
  • 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.
  • Always remember to back up your data before starting the installation process to prevent any potential data loss.

Install MongoDB on Fedora 39

Step 1. Start by updating your Fedora system to ensure you have the latest packages. Open the terminal and run the following command:

sudo dnf clean all
sudo dnf update

Step 2. Installing MongoDB on Fedora 39.

Add the MongoDB repository to your Fedora system. Create a repo file using the command:

sudo nano /etc/yum.repos.d/mongodb-org-7.0.repo

In the opened file, add the following lines:

name=MongoDB Repository

Now, install MongoDB by running the following command:

sudo dnf install mongodb-org

To verify the installation, start the MongoDB service using the command:

sudo systemctl start mongod

Then, check the service status with:

sudo systemctl status mongod

To ensure MongoDB starts whenever your system boots, use the command:

sudo systemctl enable mongod

Step 3. Securing MongoDB Installation.

To secure MongoDB, use the mongo command to access the MongoDB shell, then create an administrative user with the following commands:

use admin
    user: "admin",
    pwd: "password",
    roles: [ { role: "userAdminAnyDatabase", db: "admin" } ]

Replace “password” with a strong password and restart the MongoDB service:

sudo systemctl restart mongod

Step 4. Create a Sample Database in MongoDB.

To access the MongoDB shell, run:


To create a new database called ‘idroot-db‘, run the following command in the Mongo shell:

use idroot-db

This will switch the context to a new database called ‘idroot-db‘. If it does not exist, MongoDB will create it.

Let’s create a collection called ‘products‘ in the ‘idroot-db‘ database:


Now we can insert some sample documents in the ‘products‘ collection:

db.products.insertOne({name: "Apples", quantity: 10}) 

  {name: "Oranges", quantity: 15},
  {name: "Bananas", quantity: 20}

This inserts one document and then multiple documents in the ‘products‘ collection. And that’s it! We have now created a sample database ‘idroot-db‘ with a collection ‘products‘ containing some sample documents. You can now run queries, updates, etc to interact with this database.

Congratulations! You have successfully installed MongoDB. Thanks for using this tutorial for installing the MongoDB database on your Fedora 39 system. For additional Apache or useful information, we recommend you check the official MongoDB website.
