MongoDB on Raspberry Pi is a nice thing. But you can’t simply install the normal version. Fortunately someone still provide a special pi version. The MongoPi !

1.  Install git and others

sudo apt-get install git-core build-essential scons libpcre++-dev xulrunner-dev libboost-dev libboost-program-options-dev libboost-thread-dev libboost-filesystem-dev

2. clone the git mongo pi repository

git clone git://github.com/RickP/mongopi.git

3. go in the folder were mongopi is located

cd mongopi

4. wait (it take about 2,5 h)

5. the actual installation 😉 (it will be installed to /opt/mongo/ )

sudo scons --prefix=/opt/mongo install

6. Add MongoPI the the Path Variable

export PATH


1. Run this command:


2. (if your are running into a error saying that the path /data/db does not exist – simply create it)

cd /
sudo mkdir /data/
cd data/
sudo mkdir db

…..to be continued…..
