I am currently running an application on mySQL, but I want to run a second application that requires mongodb. How do I run both on the same Linode?

Hey there,

So it is absolutely possible to run both MongoDB and MySQL on the same Linode. First, you will need to install MongoDDB on the Linode. I would recommend taking a look at these guides first depending on whether you're using Debian or RHEL:

One you have MongoDB installed, you should be able to specify your program to use MongoDB's database. If you run into any further issues, please don't hesitate to ask for some additional help here.
