With the release that occurred on March 4th we have added Mongo support to the DevCloud. So connecting to a Mongo instance is extremely easy to do now. We don’t provide access to a Mongo collection but you do have the tools to connect to various Mongo service providers. For this example I used MongoHQ though any service running Mongo sound work.
First go to whichever service you are using and create a new collection. Like this
Then click on the Zend Server link for your container. Like this
Go to Server Setup / Extensions and enable Mongo. Like this
Restart Zend Server and deploy code. Like this
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11
$db = new Mongo('mongodb://kschroeder:firstname.lastname@example.org:10050/kschroeder'); $collection = $db->kschroeder->views; $collection->insert( array( 'view' => new MongoDate() ) ); echo $collection->count() . ' views on this page';
Now you’re doing Mongo on the DevCloud like a boss.
It took me all of 10 minutes to do this.
