i have windows 10 php 7 and mysql installed and all working fine.
i installed mongodb database and its operational, tested using compass.
i am now trying to use it from within php. i have used it before on an older machine successfully.
i downloaded mongodb.dll threadsafe64 - i thought the right one.
i put the extension parameter into ini file - =mongodb.dll
and then restarted all wamp services.
mongo driver is not loading and no sign in phpinfo().
in the php error log it says not found [di]r/mongodb.dll unable to load module.
i gathered this could be becuae i had installed the wrong version? i changed the name in the ini file to a rubbish name and tried again, same message.
the filename is correct and its in the right directory .
i then downlaoded a 32bit version (same name obviously) to see what would happen. this time it got a different message - about being wrong type. so its definitly going to the right place.
all i can now think of is that i am using the wrong wrong version of the dll, i tried to check the right version of the dll for php v7 but i couldnt trace what that should be.
do i need to put the pdb file there also?
