MongoDB

Note: This driver is no longer maintained. Please read the announcement.

This is the low-level HHVM driver for MongoDB. The API is the same as the PHP driver for MongoDB. The documentation for both of them is the same, and can be found at http://www.php.net/manual/en/set.mongodb.php

The driver is written to be a bare bone layer to talk to MongoDB, and therefore misses many convenience features. Instead, these convenience methods have been split out into a layer written in PHP, the MongoDB Library. Using this library should be your preferred way of interacting with MongoDB.

Please note that the new HHVM and PHP drivers implement a different API from the legacy driver at http://pecl.php.net/package/mongo; therefore existing libraries that use the legacy driver (e.g. Doctrine MongoDB's ODM) will not work with the new drivers.

In the long run, we hope that userland packages will be built atop this driver to implement various APIs (e.g. a BC layer for the existing driver, new fluent interfaces), management utilities (for creating admin utilities and cluster management applications), and other interesting libraries.

Installation

Please ensure, that before you install the extension, the following tools are installed: autoconf, automake, and libtool.

Compiling this extension requires the hphpize command, which is available by installing the hhvm-dev package from the HHVM repositories or building HHVM from source.

Besides the extension, we recommend using it in combination with our userland library which is distributed as mongodb/mongodb for Composer.

From a package (.tgz)

Releases of this driver can be found on https://github.com/mongodb/mongo-hhvm-driver/releases

Please download the latest .tgz file into a directory, and run the following commands:

mkdir hhvm-mongodb
cd hhvm-mongodb
tar -xvzf ../hhvm-mongodb-1.1.2.tgz
cd hhvm-mongodb-1.1.2
hphpize
cmake .
make configlib
make -j [number_of_processor_cores] # eg. make -j 4
make install

Building from source

Run the following commands:

git clone https://github.com/mongodb/mongo-hhvm-driver --branch master
cd mongo-hhvm-driver/
git submodule update --init --recursive
hphpize
cmake .
make configlib
make -j [number_of_processor_cores] # eg. make -j 4
make install

Installing

In your /etc/hhvm/php.ini, add the following lines (adjusting paths if necessary):

hhvm.dynamic_extensions[mongodb]=mongodb.so
