PHP 5.5.16 is released

The MongoClient class

(PECL mongo >=1.3.0)

Introduction

A connection manager for PHP and MongoDB.

This class is used to create and manage connections. A typical use is:

Example #1 MongoClient basic usage

<?php

$m 
= new MongoClient(); // connect
$db $m->foo// get the database named "foo"

?>

See MongoClient::__construct() and the section on connecting for more information about creating connections.

Predefined Constants

MongoClient Constants

MongoClient::VERSION
PHP driver version. May be suffixed with "dev", "+" or "-" if it is in-between versions.
MongoClient::DEFAULT_HOST
"localhost"
Host to connect to if no host is given.
MongoClient::DEFAULT_PORT
27017
Port to connect to if no port is given.
MongoClient::RP_PRIMARY
"primary"
Read preference for the primary replica set member.
MongoClient::RP_PRIMARY_PREFERRED
"primaryPreferred"
Read preference for preferring the primary replica set member.
MongoClient::RP_SECONDARY
"secondary"
Read preference for a secondary replica set member.
MongoClient::RP_SECONDARY_PREFERRED
"secondaryPreferred"
Read preference for preferring a secondary replica set member.
MongoClient::RP_NEAREST
"nearest"
Read preference for the nearest replica set member.

Fields

connected

This property will be set to TRUE if we have a open connection to the database, FALSE otherwise. If the connection is to a replica set, this property will only be TRUE if the driver has a connection to a node matching the current read preference. This property does not take authentication into account.

This property is deprecated since version 1.5.0.

status

This property is no longer used and will be set to NULL In driver versions 1.1.x and earlier, this may be set to a string value (e.g. "recycled", "new") when persistent connections are used.

This property is deprecated since version 1.5.0.

php monogo driver 1.3.4
feb 2013

After demoting old replicaset primary to secondary, and promoting old replicaset second into primary, we began seeing "No candidate servers found" MongoException at initial attempt to connect to (new) replicaset primary (via this hint in the /etc/mongo.conf: replSet = rs1/pri.eastghost.com)

Fix seems to be

1. NEVER list "localhost" in the bind= line of /etc/mongo.conf

2. ALWAYS list every replica set member in every member's /etc/hosts file -- there seems to be something wrong with DNS lookup timing.

This will help maintain sanity while debugging replicaSet connectivity problems:

error_reporting( E_ALL )
// print every log message possible
\MongoLog::setLevel(\MongoLog::ALL); // all log levels
\MongoLog::setModule(\MongoLog::ALL); // all parts of the driver

Seeing as the Mongo class has been deprecated, I'm using the following code to allow compatibility with the pre 1.3.0 driver successfully.

<?php
$class
= 'MongoClient';

if(!
class_exists($class)){
           
   
$class = 'Mongo';
           
}
       
$conn = new $class($hosts, $args);
?>
