Installing on Linux (DEB) - ODBC Driver for MongoDB
ODBC Driver for MongoDB works under control of an ODBC driver manager. ODBC driver manager is not distributed along with our driver and must be installed separately.
ODBC Driver for MongoDB is compatible with UnixODBC driver manager.
In case when using other ODBC driver managers, ODBC Driver for MongoDB will be installed, but it will require manual modification of configuration files of these managers.
Let's consider how to install the Devart ODBC driver on Linux from a DEB package, for example, on Ubuntu. There are two ways to install the driver either manually or via the command line.
By default the required package will be downloaded into the ~/Downloads folder (or the selected one);
sudo dpkg -i devartodbcmongo_i386.deb
To install the devartodbcmongo_amd64.deb on a 64-bit system, use the following command:
sudo dpkg -i devartodbcmongo_amd64.deb
Driver is installed successfully.
To activate the driver, perform the steps described in the Product Activation article.
After the driver is installed, a DSN with the name DEVART_MONGODB is created. You can use it to test connection with MONGODB server. For this, perform the following steps:
Server=<your MongoDB server address> Port=<your MongoDB Port> Database=<your MongoDB database name> Client Library=libmongoc-1.0.so.0 BSON Library=libbson-1.0.so.0
isql -v DEVART_MONGODB
After the driver is installed, four libraries will be copied to the driver installation folder:
The installer automatically detects the bitness of an operating system and creates the symlinks libmongoc-1.0.so.0 and libbson-1.0.so.0 for 32-bit or for 64-bit libraries correspondingly.
