To insert data into MongoDB using PHP, you can follow these steps:

  1. Install the MongoDB PHP driver: You need to install the MongoDB PHP driver before you can start using MongoDB with PHP. You can install the driver using PECL or by downloading and installing it manually.
  2. Establish a connection with MongoDB: You need to establish a connection with MongoDB before you can start inserting data into it. You can use the MongoClient class to create a connection with MongoDB.
  3. Select a database: Once you have established a connection with MongoDB, you need to select a database to work with. You can use the selectDB method of the MongoClient class to select a database.
  4. Select a collection: A collection is a group of MongoDB documents. Once you have selected a database, you need to select a collection to work with. You can use the selectCollection method of the MongoDB class to select a collection.
  5. Insert data: You can use the insert method of the MongoCollection class to insert data into MongoDB. The insert method takes an array of key-value pairs as its argument, where the keys are the names of the fields in the collection and the values are the values of the fields.

Here is an example code snippet that shows how to insert data into MongoDB using PHP:

// Establish a connection with MongoDB
$mongoClient = new MongoClient();

// Select a database
$database = $mongoClient->selectDB('my_database');

// Select a collection
$collection = $database->selectCollection('my_collection');

// Insert data
$data = array(
    'name' => 'John Doe',
    'email' => '[email protected]',
    'age' => 30


In this example, we have inserted a document with the name, email, and age fields into the my_collection collection in the my_database database.

To insert data into MongoDB using PHP, you need to follow these steps:

  1. Connect to MongoDB server: You can use the MongoDBDriverManager class to connect to the MongoDB server. Here's an example of how to connect to a MongoDB server running on the localhost:$manager = new MongoDBDriverManager("mongodb://localhost:27017");
  2. Create a document: A document is a basic unit of data in MongoDB. It is represented as an associative array in PHP. Here's an example of how to create a document:$document = [ 'name' => 'John Doe', 'email' => '[email protected]', 'age' => 30 ];
  3. Insert the document: You can use the MongoDBDriverBulkWrite class to insert the document into a MongoDB collection. Here's an example of how to insert a document into a collection called "users":$bulk = new MongoDBDriverBulkWrite(); $bulk->insert($document); $manager->executeBulkWrite('test.users', $bulk); In the above code, test is the name of the database, and users is the name of the collection.Alternatively, you can also use the MongoDBDriverQuery class to insert a document. Here's an example:$query = new MongoDBDriverQuery($document); $manager->executeQuery('test.users', $query); In the above code, the $document variable contains the document to be inserted, and test.users is the name of the collection.

That's it! The above code will insert the document into the specified collection in MongoDB using PHP.
