Mongodb installation on debian



    • ALL



      Installation for mongodb on debian is not smoooth. Also it doesn't work correctly. I followed the below link provided by mongodb, but still it fails


      So after downloading the packages, it throws the error

      dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of mongodb-org:
      mongodb-org depends on mongodb-org-server; however:
      Package mongodb-org-server is not configured yet.

      So in configuration files you need to change the dbpath or different variables and owner of different location to work it out. Also as suggested by mongodb to have a dedicated OS user for mongodb will not work because pid is not configurable till 2.6 release. So you always have to do sudo to start the mongo database. I believe we need to fix this and have smooth installation and run in Debian. Any suggestions please.
