MongoDB - NoSQL database

Mongo DB (from "humongous") is a scalable, high-performance document-oriented NoSQL database system. Instead of storing data in tables as is done in a "classical" relational database, MongoDB stores structured data as JSON-like documents with dynamic schemas, making integration with certain types of applications easier and faster.

This appliance includes all the standard features in TurnKey Core, and on top of that:

  • MongoDB configurations:

    • MongoDB installed and maintained through the package management system (mongodb package).
    • Configured with auth enabled (security).
    • Configured to bind to all network interfaces (convenience).
    • Includes mongo-tools (via package management) - a collection of tools for administering MongoDB servers.
    • Includes MongoDB PHP7.0 bindings (mongodb). Note, for use with PHP, you may wish to also install the MongoDB PHP Library
    • Includes MongoDB Python3 bindings and iPython3.
    • Includes mongo-express admin GUI tool.
    • Bundled with Nginx webserver.
  • Postfix MTA (bound to localhost) to allow sending of email (e.g., password recovery).

  • Webmin modules for configuring Postfix.

Credentials (passwords set at first boot)

  • Webmin, SSH: username root
  • Mongo-Express: username admin
