Installing the MongoDB PHP Driver on Windows

Precompiled binaries are attached to the project's » Github releases. Archives are published for various combinations of PHP version, thread safety (TS or NTS), and architecture (x86 or x64). Determining the correct archive for the PHP environment and extract the php_mongodb.dll file to the extension directory ("ext" by default).

Add the following line to the php.ini file for each environment that will need to use the driver:


Failure to select the correct binary will result in an error when attempting to load the extension DLL at runtime:

PHP Warning:  PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library 'mongodb'

Ensure that the downloaded DLL corresponds to the following PHP runtime properties:

In addition to the aforementioned constants, these properties can also be inferred from phpinfo(). If a system has multiple PHP runtimes installed, double-check that the phpinfo() output is for the correct environment.

Note: Additional DLL dependencies for Windows Users

Afin de faire fonctionner cette extension, quelques bibliothèques DLL doivent être disponibles via le PATH du système Windows. Lisez la F.A.Q intitulée "Comment ajouter mon dossier PHP à mon PATH Windows" pour plus d'informations. Le fait de copier les bibliothèques DLL depuis le dossier PHP dans le dossier système Windows fonctionne également (car le dossier système est par défaut dans le PATH système), mais cette méthode n'est pas recommandée. Cette extension nécessite que les fichiers suivants se trouvent dans le PATH : libsasl.dll
