I have a Vagrant box I’m trying to install Percona Server for MongoDB on. I run “yum install Percona-Server-MongoDB -y” then “service mongod start” but I get the following:
[root@localhost vagrant]# service mongod start
Starting mongod: [FAILED]
I then try this:
[root@localhost vagrant]# mongod -f /etc/mongod.conf

Any idea why this is happening? Googling didn’t help, and I’d previously been able to get a 3.x release candidate version to work. The box is using a fully updated copy of CentOS 6.
