How Can I Install a MongoDB Client?

MongoDB provides client installation packages for different OSs at its official website. You can download MongoDB from the official binary download page at https://www.mongodb.com/download-center#community.

The following uses Red Hat Linux 7 and MongoDB 3.2.7 as examples to describe how to obtain the required installation package and install the MongoDB client.

Procedure

  1. Obtain the installation package.

    1. Log in at https://www.mongodb.com/download-center#community.
    2. Choose Server, select RHEL 7 Linux 64-bit x64 for OS, and click All version binaries. Figure 1 shows an example.

  2. Open the downloaded installation package. In the bin directory, select the required tools and upload them to the ECS.

    The common tools are as follows:

    • MongoDB client mongo
    • Data export tool mongoexport
    • Data import tool mongoimport
    NOTE:

    When you create an ECS, select an OS, such as Red Hat 6.6, and bind an EIP to it. Then, upload the installation package to the ECS using a remote tool, and use PuTTY to connect to the ECS.

  3. Run the following commands to grant the permission to upload tools to the ECS:

    chmod +x mongo

    chmod +x mongoexport

    chmod +x mongoimport

  4. Ensure that the installation is successful by referring to section Connecting to a DB Instance.
