Installing MongoDB on Fedora 19

I am working through Professional NoSQL, which is a great introduction to the NoSQL universe. However, I ran into an error installing MongoDB – below is the error and how I installed it successfully.

Installing MongoDB via mongodb.org
I followed the Quickstart Guide and MongoDB downloaded and seemed to install perfectly fine. However, I wasn’t able to start the mongodb server, I the following error:

~$ service mongod start
Unit mongod.service not loaded.

~$ 

Installing MongoDB via Fedora Repo
It turns out that Fedora have their own repo for mongodb, which installs and starts right out of the box:

~$ sudo yum autoremove mongo*
...
~$ sudo yum --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=fedora,updates install mongodb mongodb-server
...
~$ systemctl start mongod.service

and confirm that the mongo server is running:
~$ mongo

It was that easy! Thank you Fedora 🙂
