    Getting a Database

    To select a database, use:

    <?php
    $connection 
    = new MongoClient();
    $db $connection->dbname;
    ?>

    The database does not need to be created in
    advance, you can create new databases by selecting them.

    Be careful of typos! You can inadvertently create a
    new database, which can cause confusing errors (here name
    is misspelled as anme in the second selection:

    <?php
    $connection 
    = new MongoClient();

    $db $connection->mybiglongdbname;
    // do some stuff

    $db $connection->mybiglongdbanme;
    // now connected to a different database!
    ?>
