Install mongoDB on BOSS GNU/Linux

This post will help you out installing NoSQL mongoDB on BOSS GNU/Linux ( Debian-based Linux distribution ).  
BOSS version 4.0 & 5.0
latest version of mongoDB (2.4)
1) Import GPG key

root@boss[bin]#apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv 7F0CEB10
 10gen package authenticated and it so require GPG key.

2) Create mongoDB 10gen package 

root@boss[bin]#echo 'deb http://downloads-distro.mongodb.org/repo/debian-sysvinit dist 10gen' | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/10gen.list
above command will create the file which contain  package location latest version of mongoDB.

 3) Updates the package lists from a server
root@boss[bin]#sudo apt-get update
re-synchronize the package index files from their sources.
it may throw error, if the GPG key not imported properly

: GPG error: http://downloads-distro.mongodb.org dist Release: 
 The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: 

note : in our BOSS version 4.0 & 5.0 , mongoDB successfully installed and running even if the key not imported properly.

4) Installing mongoDB
root@boss[bin]#sudo apt-get install mongodb-10gen
 latest version of mongoDB automatically installed.
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
You might want to run `apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  libboost-dev: Depends: libboost1.49-dev but it is not installable
  mongodb: Depends: mongodb-dev but it is not going to be installed
           Depends: mongodb-server (>= 1:2.4.1-2) but it is not going to be installed
  mongodb-10gen: Conflicts: mongodb but 1:2.4.3-1 is to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
 4.1) Install any dependencies that your previous installs missed.
in our above command, installation not succeed because of missing dependencies mongodb-dev & mongodb-server. issue the blow command to install those depends.  
root@boss[bin]#apt-get -f install 
Install these packages without verification [y/N]? y

 by issuing above command mongoDB server installed & started successfully.

5) Know the location of config file

root@boss[bin]#ps -ef | grep mongo
mongodb  14603     1  0 10:53 ?        00:00:00 /usr/bin/mongod --config /etc/mongodb.conf
root     14655 18627  0 10:54 pts/3    00:00:00 grep mongo
also use 
5.1)Get the running instance of mongoDB

root@boss[bin]#ps -A | grep mongo 
 14603 ?        00:00:00 mongod
 5.2) Get the binary executable location of mongoDB

root@boss[bin]#whereis mongo 
 mongo: /usr/bin/mongo /usr/share/man/man1/mongo.1.gz

 by issuing above command we can come to know, the 
  1. mongo server running on PID 14603
  2. All binary file available under /usr/bin directory.
  3. config file under /etc/mongodb.conf
6) Controlling mangoDB
starting  mongoDB
root@boss[bin]#/etc/init.d/mongodb strat 
 Starting database: mongodb.
get the status
root@boss[bin]#/etc/init.d/mongodb status 
 Checking status of database: mongodb running..
stopping mongoDB
root@boss[bin]#/etc/init.d/mongodb stop 
 Stopping database: mongodb.
7) Running mongo

MongoDB shell version: 2.4.4
connecting to: test
> db 
 by default its connecting test  database.
command "db" will return the current connected database, you can switch to any database by "use dbname"

note : here I logged in as root user, use sudo if you logged in an other then root user.
