As part of getting started to NoSQL DB’s I thought of trying out MongoDB.
Installation was quite easy. Here is how I installed mongoDB on your ubuntu.
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv 7F0CEB10 echo 'deb http://downloads-distro.mongodb.org/repo/ubuntu-upstart dist 10gen' | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mongodb.list sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install mongodb-10gen
Thats it, installation is over.
The mongoDB is setup with upstart, so you can start the service with the following command
sudo service mongodb start
You can enter into mongoDB CLI to explore more, just type mongo in your terminal
Everything is fine. But when I do unclean shutdown sometimes, mongoDB service won’t start automatically. So after each unclean shutdown I need to do remove the lock file and start service manually.
sudo rm /var/lib/mongodb/mongod.lock sudo service mongodb start
Happy exploring mongoDB.
