MongoDB is a popular NoSQL document-oriented database that is widely used for web applications and big data solutions. In this guide, we will walk you through the steps to install MongoDB on Kali Linux.
Step 1: Add the MongoDB Repository
Before installing MongoDB, you need to add the MongoDB repository to your Kali Linux system. Open the terminal and run the following command:
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv 7F0CEB10
This command adds the MongoDB public GPG key to your system.
Next, run the following command to add the MongoDB repository to your system:
echo "deb http://repo.mongodb.org/apt/debian stretch/mongodb-org/4.4 main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mongodb-org-4.4.list
This command adds the MongoDB repository to your Kali Linux system.
Step 2: Install MongoDB
Now that you have added the MongoDB repository, you can install MongoDB using the following command:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install mongodb-org
This command will download and install the MongoDB package and its dependencies.
Step 3: Start MongoDB
After installation, you can start MongoDB using the following command:
sudo systemctl start mongod
To ensure that MongoDB starts automatically at boot time, run the following command:
sudo systemctl enable mongod
Step 4: Verify MongoDB Installation
To verify that MongoDB is installed and running correctly, you can check the status of the mongod service using the following command:
sudo systemctl status mongod
If MongoDB is running correctly, you will see a message indicating that the mongod service is active.
Step 5: Connect to MongoDB
Now that you have installed MongoDB, you can connect to it using the mongo shell. To do this, simply type the following command in the terminal:
This will open the mongo shell, where you can execute various commands to manage your MongoDB instance.
In this guide, we have shown you how to install MongoDB on Kali Linux. MongoDB is a powerful NoSQL document-oriented database that is widely used for web applications and big data solutions. We hope that this guide has been helpful in getting MongoDB up and running on your Kali Linux machine.
