I want to install an admin UI for my mongodb server to view my data easily. I know there is an official list of recommended admin UI's by 10gen here:

http://www.mongodb.org/display/DOCS/Admin+UIs

but I wanted to know what tools are easily installable and popular on Webfaction for admin UI's. Any recommendations for a tool which would be easy to setup and is decent?

The easiest to install and configure is Genghis. Its a php based solution and requires you to install php mongo pecl. Then you just need to install a Static/CGI/PHP application in the control panel and upload the one file that is provided. Mount the application on a URL with a website and visit in the browser. Add your database:

localhost:<port number>

Then you can administer your database from the browser.

On the welcome to Genghis website, when adding the server (typed, localhost:<12345>, 12345 being the port associated to mongodb app = custom app listening on port (port 12345)), I get an error ("unable to connect to Mongo server"). i don't see what I should do else. Thanks for any hint.
