Download Percona Backup for MongoDB from Percona website

You can download Percona Backup for MongoDB from Percona website and install it:

  • From binary tarballs.
  • Manually, from the installation packages using dpkg (Debian and Ubuntu) or rpm (Red Hat Enterprise Linux and CentOS). However, you must make sure that all dependencies are satisfied.

Install from binary tarball

Find the link to the binary tarballs under the Generic Linux menu item on Percona website.

1. Fetch the binary tarball

Replace the <version> with the required version.

$ wget<version>/binary/tarball/percona-backup-mongodb-<version>-x86_64.tar.gz

2. Extract the tarball

$ tar -xf percona-backup-mongodb-<version>-x86_64.tar.gz

3. Export the location of the binaries to the PATH variable

For example, if you’ve extracted the tarball to your home directory, the command would be the following:

$ export PATH=~/percona-backup-mongodb-<version>/:$PATH

After Percona Backup for MongoDB is successfully installed on your system, you have pbm and pbm-agent programs available. See Initial setup for guidelines how to set up Percona Backup for MongoDB.
