Example #1 MongoClient basic usage


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

PHP driver version. May be suffixed with "dev", "+" or "-" if it is in-between versions.
Host to connect to if no host is given.
Port to connect to if no port is given.
Read preference for the primary replica set member.
Read preference for preferring the primary replica set member.
Read preference for a secondary replica set member.
Read preference for preferring a secondary replica set member.
Read preference for the nearest replica set member.

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.


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.
