Installation on 32bit system

I have some problems installing MongoDB as local database on the edge which has the following features: Linux 5.4.66-sunxi armv7l. Its kernel is 32bit.

Today I realize that mongodb-server, mongodb-10gen and mongodb-org-server can no longer be installed on 32-bit systems.

Has anyone managed to solve this problem?

Thank you,
Best regards,


  • MongoDB stopped the support for all 32 bits OS a while ago because it’s limited to about 2GB of RAM which is simply not enough to run something in production and it was too complicated/costly to support both 32 and 64 bits systems in the code.
  • So maybe you can use Docker or a VM to simulate a 64 bits system ─ but you will likely have similar issues with these ─ and then deploy MongoDB in it but I think it’s time for an update to 64 bits :slight_smile:.
  • You can use MongoDB Atlas to deploy your cluster in the cloud (Free Tier available).

In case of any other queries, feel free to reach out to us.
