In this page I will show you how to install MongoDB on CentOS. I recommend you install MongoDB by yum command. Before installing, you need to add /etc/yum.repos.d/mongodb-org-3.0.repo file. I install 3.0 version, you can change this number to install different version, click here to get which version are available. Add following code in repository file.
