To set up the MongoDB driver on XAMPP, you can follow these steps:

  1. Download the MongoDB PHP driver from the official MongoDB website. Make sure to choose the correct version that matches your PHP version and operating system.
  2. Extract the downloaded driver files to a folder on your computer.
  3. Locate the "php.ini" file in the XAMPP installation directory. This file is typically located in the "php" folder within the XAMPP directory.
  4. Open the "php.ini" file in a text editor and search for the following line: ;extension=.dll
  5. Uncomment (remove the semicolon) from the beginning of the line and add the path to the MongoDB driver file. It should look something like this: extension=php_mongodb.dll
  6. Save the "php.ini" file and restart the Apache server in XAMPP to apply the changes.
  7. To verify that the MongoDB driver is successfully installed, create a PHP file with the following code and open it in a browser:
1
2
3
<?php
phpinfo();
?>


  1. Search for "mongodb" in the output of the phpinfo() function. If you see information about the MongoDB driver, then it is successfully installed.


You should now be able to use the MongoDB driver in your PHP scripts on XAMPP. Remember to install the MongoDB server separately and configure it to work with your PHP scripts.
