Step 2: Add Your Cloud Instance

From your Cloud Dashboard, click the ‘Add VM’ button. Choose a cloud instance that suits your needs and budget. For more detailed information about our offerings, you can visit our Pricing Page.

Step 3: Install MongoDB

Log into your ServerStadium cloud instance and install MongoDB with the following commands:

wget -qO - | sudo apt-key add -
echo "deb [ arch=amd64,arm64 ] focal/mongodb-org/4.4 multiverse" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mongodb-org-4.4.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y mongodb-org

These commands will add the MongoDB repository to your sources list, update your package list, and install MongoDB.

Step 4: Start MongoDB Service

Once MongoDB is installed, start the MongoDB service with the following command:

sudo systemctl start mongod

You can also set MongoDB to start automatically at boot with this command:

sudo systemctl enable mongod

Step 5: Verify MongoDB Installation

Verify that MongoDB is running correctly with the following command:

mongo --eval 'db.runCommand({ connectionStatus: 1 })'

This command will return a status document that contains various information about the MongoDB connection.


Congratulations! You’ve successfully set up a MongoDB database on your ServerStadium cloud instance. You’re now ready to start building your MongoDB-based application.
