For Debian users: apt-get install php5-dev will install phpize for you.
The MongoDB PHP driver should work on nearly any system: Windows, Mac OS X, Unix, and Linux; little- and big-endian machines; 32- and 64-bit machines; PHP 5.1, 5.2, and 5.3.
이 » PECL 확장은 PHP 배포판에서 제공하지 않습니다. This page gives more specific information on installing on different systems and troubleshooting issues users have run into.
Installing on *NIX
$ sudo pecl install mongo
If you are using CentOS or Redhat, Csoke Arpad created » RPMs for these distributions.
Add the following line to your php.ini file:
If pecl runs out of memory while installing, make sure memory_limit in php.ini is set to at least 32MB.
For driver developers and people interested in the latest bugfixes, you can compile the driver from the latest source code on » Github. Go to Github and click the "download" button. Then run:
$ tar zxvf mongodb-mongodb-php-driver-<commit_id>.tar.gz $ cd mongodb-mongodb-php-driver-<commit_id> $ phpize $ ./configure $ sudo make install
Make the following changes to php.ini:
Make sure the extension_dir variable is pointing to the location of mongo.so. The build will display where it is installing the PHP driver with output that looks something like:
$ php -i | grep extension_dir extension_dir => /usr/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-zts-20060613 => /usr/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-zts-20060613
To load the extension on PHP startup, add a line:
If your system is unable to find autoconf, you'll need to install Xcode (available on your installation DVD or as a free download from the Apple website).
If you are using XAMPP, you may be able to compile the driver with the following command:
sudo /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/bin/pecl install mongo
If you are using MAMP (or XAMPP and the above command does not work), precompiled binaries are available from » Github (download the latest one with "osx" in the name that matches your version of PHP). Extract mongo.so from the archive and add it to MAMP or XAMPP's extension directory. Add
Gentoo has a package for the PHP driver called dev-php5/mongo, which can be installed with:
$ sudo emerge -va dev-php5/mongo
If you use PECL, you may get an error that libtool is the wrong version. Compiling from source you'll need to run aclocal and autoconf.
$ phpize && aclocal && autoconf && ./configure && make && make install
This includes Fedora and CentOS.
The default Apache settings on these systems do not let requests make network connections, meaning that the driver will get "Permission denied" errors when it tries to connect to the database. If you run into this, try running:
$ /usr/sbin/setsebool -P httpd_can_network_connect 1
Installing on Windows
Precompiled binaries for each release are available from » Github for a variety of combinations of versions, thread safety, and VC libraries. Unzip the archive and put php_mongo.dll in your PHP extension directory ("ext" by default).
The latest (non-release) code is compiled into Windows binaries on every commit. The zip consists of a .zip with php_mongo.dll and a version.txt. Please keep the version.txt around so that if you have a question or problem, you can give the developers the exact version you're using. (The number is long and nonsensical, but it will make sense to the developers!)
To get the latest bug fixes (and possibly bugs), download the binary corresponding to the PHP you have installed:
Add the following line to your php.ini file:
Third-Party Installation Instructions
A number of people have created excellent tutorials on installing the PHP driver.
An excellent video that takes you step-by-step through installing Apache, PHP, Xdebug, MongoDB, and Lithium by Jon Adams.
Spanish article by Javier Aranda (» English translation).
By Matt Butcher.
In Windows running IIS the directory to instal is "C:\Program Files\PHP\ext". Than you have to install the apropriate MongoDriver version (in my case was mongo-1.1.4-php5.3vc9) and than Restart IIS.
The MongoDB Driver will be available.
If you're running IIS under Windows 7 and have PHP manager installed you'll also need to manually enable the extension. Start IIS Manager, select PHP Manager, under the section labeled PHP Extensions click on Enable or disable an extension, then enable the php_mongo.dll extension, and restart IIS.
To install the Mongo driver on Windows 7 x64 with EasyPHP, you have to use the x86 driver (instead of x64) and non nts :
I am using XAMPP 1.7.4 (32 bit) on Windows 7. Though it was mentioned that Apache uses a non-threadsafe version of DLL, when used, it was giving me the below error:
PHP Warning: PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library
Warning: PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library 'D:\xampp\php\ext\php_mongo.dll' - The specified module could not be found.
I had to use the thread-safe version (mongo-1.1.4.zip\mongo-1.1.4-php5.3vc6ts\php_mongo.dll) to get it working.
On windows installation check for VC compilator version inside phpinfo(), if you install incorrect one it wouldn't work.
I tried to run on Apache2 with VC6, and always get folowing error:
Fatal error: Class 'Mongo' not found
Until I look into phpinfo and found MSVC9, after that
I install VC9 dll files and it solve the problem.
Instructions for Manually Installing MongoDB for PHP for use with "XAMPP for Linux":
There were two gotchas that I ran into. "XAMPP for Linux" needs 32 bit libraries, and the php API version must match the php API version of "XAMPP for Linux".
Hopefully this will save someone else time figuring this all out!
1) Install "XAMPP for Linux" AND the "XAMPP for Linux Development Files".
2) Grab the source code from github (in the manual instructions above)
$ tar zxvf mongodb-mongodb-php-driver-<commit_id>.tar.gz
$ cd mongodb-mongodb-php-driver-<commit_id>
There are now some smalls deviation from the manual instructions...
$ sudo /opt/lampp/bin/phpize
5) Make changes to the Makefile (XAMPP requires a 32-bit compilation)
- Choose your favorite text editor and open "Makefile"
- Make the following changes:
Line 20: prefix = /opt/lampp
Line 23: prefix = /opt/lampp
Line 25: phpincludedir = /opt/lampp/include/php
Line 27: CFLAGS = -g -O2 -m32
Line 34: EXTENSION_DIR = /opt/lampp/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20100525/
Line 35: PHP_EXECUTABLE = /opt/lampp/bin/php
Make sure you replace </path/to/mongo-php-driver-master>
Line 38: INCLUDES = -I/opt/lampp/include/php -I/opt/lampp/include/php/main -I/opt/lampp/include/php/TSRM -I/opt/lampp/include/php/Zend -I/opt/lampp/include/php/ext -I/opt/lampp/include/php/ext/date/lib -I</path/to/mongo-php-driver-master>/util -I</path/to/mongo-php-driver-master>/exceptions -I</path/to/mongo-php-driver-master>/gridfs -I</path/to/mongo-php-driver-master>/types -I</path/to/mongo-php-driver-master>/mcon
$ sudo make all
7) Copy the static object into the extension directory
$ sudo cp modules/mongo.so /opt/lampp/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20100525/
9) Update your php.ini file
- Grab you favorite text editor and open /opt/lampp/etc/php.ini (you'll probably need to use sudo).
- Add the line: extension=mongo.so
10) Restart "XAMPP for Linux". You should now be able to see Mongo listed in your phpinfo() page! Installation Complete!!!
