Setting up the RockMongo GUI on Ubuntu


The easiest way to get started is to install Apache and PHP:

$ sudo apt-get install apache2 php5 php-pear

If you need to edit the Apache ports because you already have another server running on port 80 then edit /etc/apache2/ports.conf.

You’ll need to install the PHP Mongo connector:

sudo pecl install php_mongo

Add “” to the “Dynamic Extensions” section of /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini and restart Apache with sudo service apache2 restart.

Download the latest RockMongo and unzip it under /var/www. You should now be able to login with the default username and password of admin/admin.
