I am new to MongoDB and try to install MongoDB 3.2.9 on Ubuntu 14.01 LTS. I found there are different ways to install it as below:
1. The MongoDB official guidance use the apt-get install.
2. Download the package and create folders like bin, data, log, conf etc. and then manually and copy the corresponding modules to the bin when needed.
I am wondering which method should I use. Seems the second one is more flexible as its hard to make sense what the first one has done to the OS.
Could you advise any other impact and differences about the two methods for installation? Thanks in advance!
