Step 2: Installation with the PHP Extension Community Library (PECL)

Now let’s install the MongoDB PHP driver (extension) with PECL:

pecl install mongo

Next you’ll be prompted regarding ‘MongoDB Enterprise Authentication’. If you’re not specifically using SASL (and already have it installed), then hit enter to continue (thus answering ‘no’):

service httpd restart

Step 4: Verify the Extension is Available

Now verify that the extension is available by using the following command:

php -m | grep -i mongo
