Are you trying to get MongoDB on your Linux Server?
This guide is for you.
MongoDB is a very popular NoSQL database that can be used with both Linux and Windows operating systems. This database is specially designed to be cross-platform and it is highly document-oriented.
The documents of MongoDB follow the JSON structure and also offer optional schemas. Basically, the data in this database is stored in the form of documents.
MongoDB is almost 100 times faster than traditional database system like RDBMS, which is slower in comparison with the NoSQL databases.
