To install MongoDB on Ubuntu 22, you can follow these steps:


Update the System

Open a terminal and run the following command to update the system packages:

sudo apt update


Import the MongoDB GPG Key

Import the MongoDB GPG key to verify the authenticity of the MongoDB packages. Run the following command:

wget -qO - | sudo apt-key add -


Add MongoDB Repository

Add the MongoDB repository to your system. Run the following command:

echo "deb [arch=amd64] $(lsb_release -cs)/mongodb-org/5.0 multiverse" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mongodb-org-5.0.list


Update the System

Again, update the system packages to include the MongoDB repository:

sudo apt update


Install MongoDB

Now, you can install MongoDB by running the following command:

sudo apt install mongodb-org

This command installs the MongoDB packages, including the MongoDB server (`mongod`), MongoDB shell (`mongo`), and other MongoDB tools.


Start MongoDB Service

After the installation is complete, start the MongoDB service by running:

sudo systemctl start mongod

You can also enable MongoDB to start automatically on system boot with the following command:

sudo systemctl enable mongod


Verify MongoDB Installation

To verify that MongoDB is installed and running, use the following command:

mongo --version

You should see the version information displayed if MongoDB is installed correctly.


That's it! MongoDB is now installed on your Ubuntu 22 system. You can start using MongoDB by running the `mongo` command in the terminal or by connecting to MongoDB from your PHP application.
