Download the PHP package mongodb/mongodb without Composer

On this page you can find all versions of the php package mongodb/mongodb. It is possible to download/install these versions without Composer. Possible dependencies are resolved automatically.


After the download, you have to make one include require_once('vendor/autoload.php');. After that you have to import the classes with use statements.

If you use only one package a project is not needed. But if you use more then one package, without a project it is not possible to import the classes with use statements.

In general, it is recommended to use always a project to download your libraries. In an application normally there is more than one library needed.
Some PHP packages are not free to download and because of that hosted in private repositories. In this case some credentials are needed to access such packages. Please use the auth.json textarea to insert credentials, if a package is coming from a private repository. You can look here for more information.

  • Some hosting areas are not accessible by a terminal or SSH. Then it is not possible to use Composer.
  • To use Composer is sometimes complicated. Especially for beginners.
  • Composer needs much resources. Sometimes they are not available on a simple webspace.
  • If you are using private repositories you don't need to share your credentials. You can set up everything on our site and then you provide a simple download link to your team member.
  • Simplify your Composer build process. Use our own command line tool to download the vendor folder as binary. This makes your build process faster and you don't need to expose your credentials for private repositories.

Informations about the package mongodb

MongoDB PHP Library

Tests Coding Standards

This library provides a high-level abstraction around the lower-level PHP driver (mongodb extension).

While the extension provides a limited API for executing commands, queries, and write operations, this library implements a full-featured API similar to that of other MongoDB drivers. It contains abstractions for client, database, and collection objects, and provides methods for CRUD operations and common commands (e.g. index and collection management).

If you are developing an application with MongoDB, you should consider using this library, or another high-level abstraction, instead of the extension alone.

Additional information about the architecture of this library and the mongodb extension may be found in Architecture Overview.



The preferred method of installing this library is with Composer by running the following from your project root:

$ composer require mongodb/mongodb

Additional installation instructions may be found in the library documentation.

Since this library is a high-level abstraction for the driver, it also requires that the mongodb extension be installed:

$ pecl install mongodb
$ echo "" >> `php --ini | grep "Loaded Configuration" | sed -e "s|.*:\s*||"`

Additional installation instructions for the extension may be found in its documentation.

Reporting Issues

Issues pertaining to the library should be reported in the PHPLIB project in MongoDB's JIRA. Extension-related issues should be reported in the PHPC project.

For general questions and support requests, please use one of MongoDB's Technical Support channels.

Security Vulnerabilities

If you've identified a security vulnerability in a driver or any other MongoDB project, please report it according to the instructions in Create a Vulnerability Report.


Development is tracked in the PHPLIB project in MongoDB's JIRA. Documentation for contributing to this project may be found in
