In this blog post, I’m going to show you how to install the community version of MongoDB on a Debian 10 operating system such as Parrot.

1. Check your version of Parrot

Run the following command in your terminal to check the version of Parrot you’re using.

lsb_release -d

As you can see, I’m running version 4.10 which is a Debian 10 derivative.

2. Import the public key used by the package management system

From a terminal, issue the following command to import the MongoDB public GPG Key

wget -qO - | sudo apt-key add -

3. Create a mongodb-org list file for MongoDB

Create the list file using the following command:

echo "deb buster/mongodb-org/4.4 main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mongodb-org-4.4.list

4. Reload local package database.

Issue the following command to reload the local package database:

sudo apt-get update

To install the latest stable version of MongoDB, run this command:

sudo apt-get install -y mongodb-org

6. Start MongoDB

Run this command to start mongod:

Verify that the mongod process has started successfully by running:
