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.

注意: Additional DLL dependencies for Windows Users

为了使此扩展生效, DLL 文件必须能在 Windows 系统的 PATH 指示的路径下找到。如何操作的信息,请参见题为“如何在 Windows 中将 PHP 目录加到 PATH 中”的FAQ。虽然将 DLL 文件从 PHP 文件夹复制到 Windows 系统目录也行,但不建议这样做。 此扩展需要下列文件在 PATH 路径中: libsasl.dll
