The mongodb official site has fairly good instructions for setting up a MongoDB. I suggest people trying to install this should check out that site. We set up our test LampCMS application using a mongoDB installation that is on the same server. For production, we set it up the MongoDB recommended way - two dedicated servers (one primary, one secondary) with the arbiter on a third server. MongoDB, when set up properly, allows us to do server maintenance without taking anyone down. We use MongoDB for a few other applications, and we do server maintenance and the users are not affected.

I found that the comments in the config file are pretty explicit and complete, once you read through the file. The MongoDB parameter examples weren't set up to take advantage of the MongoDB "always up" feature. We've toyed with that a bit and have it working for the most part.

I think one problem with creating a webcast is that there are so many variables regarding systems, making it difficult. Also there is the time factor - to create a webcast takes time if you want to do it properly.
