phpcassa is a PHP client library for Apache Cassandra.
- Compatible with Cassandra 0.7 through 1.2
- Optional C extension for improved performance
phpcassa is compatible with PHP 5.3+
phpcassa is open source under the MIT license.
At this point, phpcassa has been deprecated and will no longer be supported.
I suggest using the DataStax PHP driver located here: https://github.com/datastax/php-driver. It supports CQL, has many excellent features, and is well maintained.
While this README includes some useful information, the official and more thorough documentation can be found here:
You can find a few fully working example scripts in the
$pool = new ConnectionPool('Keyspace1');
$pool = new ConnectionPool('Keyspace1', array('localhost'));
Create a column family object
$users = new ColumnFamily($pool, 'Standard1'); $super = new SuperColumnFamily($pool, 'Super1');
$users->insert('key', array('column1' => 'value1', 'column2' => 'value2'));
$users->get('key'); $users->multiget(array('key1', 'key2'));
$users->remove('key1'); // removes whole row $users->remove('key1', 'column1'); // removes 'column1'
$users->get_count('key1'); // counts the number of columns in row 'key1' $users->get_range('key1', 'key9'); // gets all rows with keys between '1' and '9'
Using the C Extension
The C extension is crucial for phpcassa's performance.
You need to configure and make to be able to use the C extension.
checkinstall is available, run
sudo checkinstall in place of
sudo make install.
cd ext/thrift_protocol phpize ./configure make sudo make install
