This extension is developed atop the libmongoc and libbson libraries. It provides a minimal API for core driver functionality: commands, queries, writes, connection management, and BSON serialization.
Userland PHP libraries that depend on this extension may provide higher level APIs, such as query builders, individual command helper methods, and GridFS. Application developers should consider using this extension in conjunction with the MongoDB PHP library, which implements the same higher level APIs found in MongoDB drivers for other languages (as well as the legacy PHP driver).
To build and install the driver:
$ pecl install mongodb $ echo "extension=mongodb.so" >> `php --ini | grep "Loaded Configuration" | sed -e "s|.*:\s*||"`
Additional installation instructions may be found in the PHP.net documentation.
For general questions and support requests, please use one of MongoDB's Technical Support channels.
If you've identified a security vulnerability in a driver or any other MongoDB project, please report it according to the instructions in Create a Vulnerability Report.
