I ran into ugly problems with ubuntu lack of updated repos for mongodb. It seemed it was working but when i start running the console for mongo /usr/bin/mongo and not just mongod then errors started appearing. So I did a bit of research and find a way to install the latest mongo as of this blog post. After that i had to run:
In one shell:
In another shell:
~ mongo // and configure the authentication
The authentication commands are located here.
The most problematic point was because I had a process `mongo` running on the background and had to kill it with su:
~ ps -ef | grep mongo ~ sudo killall mongo -s 9
Now everything is:
~ mongod --version db version v2.0.4, pdfile version 4.5 Thu Apr 5 17:37:11 git version: sha1 ~ mongo --version MongoDB shell version: 2.0.4
I am so excited about working the right way with mongodb!
