What is MongoDB
MongoDB is a cross-platform document-oriented database program. Classified as a NoSQL database program, MongoDB uses JSON-like documents with optional schemas. MongoDB is developed by MongoDB Inc. and licensed under the Server Side Public License (SSPL).
Relational databases are fast-growing and gaining ground in modern-day tech-related fields like AI, Machine Learning, Big Data, Data sciences, and more. Nowadays, relational databases are easy to learn and approach as well and MongoDB happens to be one of them.
To install MongoDB, the following steps should be used:
Head to the official MongoDB website and download the latest version of the MongoDB Community Server. Click here
Locate the downloaded file and run the installation by right-clicking on it then clicking install on the dropdown.
Agree to the terms and conditions of installations then click on next
After approving the terms and conditions, this page pops up. Click on next to continue
Choose the type of installation you’ll need. The complete installation is recommended as it will completely install all necessary and demanded features of MongoDB. But if you are an advanced user and want to go ahead with custom installations, that’s okay. For simplicity, I will use the complete installation procedure. Click on next after this.
Next, you need to specify the configuration of MongoDB. If you will like it to run as a network service user or a local/domain user.
Click on install and wait for the process to complete
Be patient and wait while the installation process completes
Click on finish and you are done
To use MongoDB, you will need to run the script from the installation directory. However, to make it accessible everywhere on your command line, you will need to add it to your system path.
