I installed MongoDB on live VPS to write logs. The server is running on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and Mongodb version is 2.0.3. I want to upgrade to latest version (2.0.5) but I want to upgrade only MongoDB. I made test on my desktop with apt-get upgrade and everything is OK after the upgrade. However on my VPS I prefer to update just MongoDB. Any help is appreciated.
I'm assuming that MongoDB is available in a configured apt repository. You can upgrade only certain packages by listing them in an install command, like this:
apt-get install mongodb
(You should however be keeping your server up to date with packages in the
lucid-security repository though.)
I'm guessing you accepted mgorven's answer because running
apt-get update resolved your issue. To make it clear for anyone else, to get the latest releases of MongoDB on an apt based system, follow the instructions here:
The relevant line to add to your sources list for Ubuntu 10.04 LTS is:
deb http://downloads-distro.mongodb.org/repo/ubuntu-upstart dist 10gen
Then (after importing the key and running an apt-get update), you should install using:
sudo apt-get install mongodb-10gen
If you install just using "mongodb" you will get a very old release from the 10.04 repositories instead (1.6.x if I remember correctly).
Once the 10gen package is installed,
sudo apt-get update followed by
sudo apt-get upgrade will take care of installing new versions for you.
