To use the MongoDB database on OctoberCMS, you need to follow these steps:

  1. Install the MongoDB PHP extension: Make sure you have MongoDB installed on your server. Install the MongoDB PHP extension using the following command: sudo apt-get install php-mongodb (for Linux) or brew install php-mongodb (for Mac).
  2. Install the MongoDB plugin: In your OctoberCMS project, go to the root directory of the project using the terminal. Run the following command to install the MongoDB plugin: php artisan plugin:install IndikLab.MongoDb.
  3. Configure the database connection: Open the config/database.php file in your OctoberCMS project. Add or modify the MongoDB database configuration as below: 'mongodb' => [ 'driver' => 'mongodb', 'host' => env('DB_HOST', 'localhost'), 'port' => env('DB_PORT', '27017'), 'username' => env('DB_USERNAME', ''), 'password' => env('DB_PASSWORD', ''), 'database' => env('DB_DATABASE'), 'options' => [ 'database' => 'admin' // Set the database here ] ],
  4. Set the environment variables: Open the .env file in your OctoberCMS project. Set the DB_CONNECTION variable to mongodb. Set the DB_DATABASE variable to the name of your MongoDB database. Set other MongoDB related variables as per your configuration, such as DB_HOST, DB_PORT, DB_USERNAME, and DB_PASSWORD.
  5. Migrate or seed your database: Run the migration or seed commands to set up your MongoDB collections and data.
  6. Use the MongoDB database: You can now use the MongoDB database by creating models and interacting with them using the built-in ORM (Eloquent) or directly using MongoDB queries.


That's it! You have successfully configured and can use the MongoDB database on OctoberCMS.
