I’ve received feedback that some folks are having problems compiling MongoDB 3.0.7 per my instructions AND it takes a long time 😉
MongoDB 3.0.9 just became available but needs quite a few changes to source in order to compile on the Raspberry Pi. I worked through MongoDB build scripts for ARCH ARM Linux and managed to “translate” for Raspbian (Jessie) Linux on the R-Pi 2. Rather than creating patch files and writing instructions for building from source, I am providing my compiled binaries. PLEASE do not post links to my binaries! Feel free to download for personal use from this site.
[NOTE: I have compiled version 3.0.14 and created binaries for Raspbian Jessie for the R-Pi 2 & 3. NEW: I have also created 3.0.14 binaries for the R-Pi 3 running Raspbian Stretch that will also work on the new R-Pi 3B+. I have confirmed that the instructions in this blog entry work with the new binaries.]
As always make sure you have updated your R-Pi
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
You can download a gzip file of the MongoDB core binaries v3.0.9 from here.

You can download a gzip file of the MongoDB tools v3.0.9 from here.

UPDATE: (31 Jul 2016) I was asked about supporting the SSL option in the tools. I have compiled tools v3.0.9 with the SSL flag. You can download a zipped directory from here.

UPDATE (18 Mar 2017) You can find MongoDB 3.0.14 binaries in this post
QUICK SETUP INSTRUCTIONS:
These instructions are for base mongodb (mongo, mongod, mongos, mongoperf). I have recreated from my history file and memory — so you should review carefully — and LMK if you have any issues
– check for mongodb user
grep mongodb /etc/passwd
– if NO mongodb user, create:
sudo adduser --ingroup nogroup --shell /etc/false --disabled-password --gecos "" \ --no-create-home mongodb
– cd to the directory with mongo, mongod, mongos, etc
– ensure appropriate owner & executable permissions
– strip out symbols to reduce file size
– move to /usr/bin which is in PATH
cd dir-with-binaries sudo chown root:root mongo* sudo chmod 755 mongo* sudo strip mongo* sudo cp -p mongo* /usr/bin
– create log file directory with appropriate owner & permissions
sudo mkdir /var/log/mongodb sudo chown mongodb:nogroup /var/log/mongodb
– create the DB data directory with convenient access perms
sudo mkdir /var/lib/mongodb sudo chown mongodb:root /var/lib/mongodb sudo chmod 775 /var/lib/mongodb
– create the mongodb.conf file in /etc
cd /etc sudo vi mongodb.conf
– insert into file:
# /etc/mongodb.conf # minimal config file (old style) # Run mongod --help to see a list of options bind_ip = 127.0.0.1 quiet = true dbpath = /var/lib/mongodb logpath = /var/log/mongodb/mongod.log logappend = true storageEngine = mmapv1
– create systemd / service entry
cd /lib/systemd/system sudo vi mongodb.service
– insert into file:
[Unit] Description=High-performance, schema-free document-oriented database After=network.target [Service] User=mongodb ExecStart=/usr/bin/mongod --quiet --config /etc/mongodb.conf [Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target
– you are now ready to launch mongodb!
sudo service mongodb start
– check status
sudo service mongodb status
– MAKE SURE YOU SHUTDOWN CLEANLY!
sudo service mongodb stop
Please LMK if you have issues and/or success in using these binaries and instructions 😎
MongoDB Tools install:
unzip the tools tar file after downloading into an empty directory (download link described above). Strip out symbols to reduce size, change owner and permissions, and move to /usr/bin directory:
tar zxvf tools_mongodb.tar.gz
sudo strip mongo*
sudo chown root:root mongo*
sudo chmod 755 mongo*
sudo mv mongo* /usr/bin
You can now invoke tools from the command line — mongodump, mongoimport, etc.
