NoSQL database

MongoDB (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.

Stable version: 16.1 (changelog)

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 MongoDB PHP bindings.
    • Includes MongoDB Python bindings and iPython.
  • RockMongo for web based administration:
    • Installed from upstream source code to /var/www/rockmongo.
    • RockMongo is powered by Lighttpd with SSL support out-of-the-box.
  • Postfix MTA (bound to localhost) to allow sending of email (e.g., password recovery).
  • Webmin modules for configuring Postfix.
