Follow the official MongoDB installation guide for Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
If you are going to install Relution on another machine, you need to configure MongoDB to listen on all network interfaces. If Relution is going to be installed on the same machine you can skip these steps.
sudo editor /etc/mongod.conf
Find the following section:
# network interfaces net: port: 27017 bindIp: 127.0.0.1 # Listen to local interface only, comment to listen on all interfaces.
bindIp so that it looks like this:
# network interfaces net: port: 27017 # bindIp: 127.0.0.1 # Listen to local interface only, comment to listen on all interfaces.
Restart the MongoDB service for the changes to take effect:
sudo systemctl restart mongod.service
Verify MongoDB is running as expected:
sudo cat /var/log/mongodb/mongod.log

machine or network you want to grant access to this MongoDB instance.
