Installing Percona Server for MongoDB from Binary Tarball

You can find links to the binary tarballs under the Generic Linux menu item on the Percona website

There are two tarballs available:

  • percona-server-mongodb-4.4.1-2-x86_64.glibc2.17.tar.gz is the general tarball, compatible with any operation system but for Centos 6.
  • percona-server-mongodb-4.4.1-2-x86_64.glibc2.12.tar.gz is the tarball for Centos 6.
  1. Fetch and extract the correct binary tarball. For example, if you are running Debian 10 (“buster”):

    $ wget\
    $ tar -xf percona-server-mongodb-4.4.1-2-x86_64.glibc2.17.tar.gz
  2. Add the location of the binaries to the PATH variable:

    $ export PATH=~/percona-server-mongodb-4.4.1-2/bin/:$PATH`
  3. Create the default data directory:

    $ mkdir -p /data/db
  4. Make sure that you have read and write permissions for the data directory and run mongod.
