MongoDB is an open-source NoSQL  document-oriented database program. I’ve recently started supporting MongoDB . This is my quick notes to  support MongoDB


How to install MongoDB Enterprise on Red Hat Linux

--create a repo file and insert the text below

vi /etc/yum.repos.d/mongodb-enterprise.repo


name=MongoDB Enterprise Repository





--install the package

sudo yum install -y mongodb-enterprise


Create the user Administrator 

Note:Once you've created the admin Users, you'll need to disconnect from the Mongo Shell & restart the Mongo Server

use admin
    user: "myUserAdmin",
    pwd: "abc123",
    roles: [ { role: "userAdminAnyDatabase", db: "admin" } ]



Start the MongoDB service

sudo service mongod start


Start at the next system reboot

sudo chkconfig mongod on


To allow remote connections

Step1 : how to create a user in a db


    user: 'robert',

    pwd: 'myM0ng0_pw',

    roles: [{ role: 'readWrite', db:'testdb'}]


Step 2 : Get the private address

/sbin/ifconfig | grep "inet addr" | awk -F: '{print $2}' | awk '{print $1}'


Step 3:edit mongo configuration file

--get private address from step 2 and add to bindip

vim /etc/mongod.conf
