Here we know before the installation. First of all you check that mongodb in your system exists or not. Then after check PHP version 7.2 or above. If available in your system it's good for you. You can Download from here and install it. and Install from here.

Now we move on the installation.

Laravel 6 installation with MongoDB Database

Here we need to install fresh Laravel 6 application. After installation follow steps.

Step 1 : Installation using composer

Now we must need to install one package into Laravel 6 application for MongoDB database.

composer require jenssegers/mongodb

Step 2 : Configuration

Open your project app/config.php file. Add this line in providers.


Change your default database connection name in app/database.php

'default' => env('DB_CONNECTION', 'mysql'),

    // Mysql Replace to MongoDB

'default' => env('DB_CONNECTION', 'mongodb'),

Now add a new mongodb connection.

'mongodb' => [
    'driver'   => 'mongodb',
    'host'     => env('MONGO_DB_HOST', 'localhost'),
    'port'     => env('MONGO_DB_PORT', 27017),
    'database' => env('MONGO_DB_DATABASE'),
    'username' => env('MONGO_DB_USERNAME'),
    'password' => env('MONGO_DB_PASSWORD'),
    'options'  => []

Step 3 : Open ROBO 3T

Open robo3t and configure it.

1) Create Connection wtih MongoDB database.

Robo3t test connection

2) Create Database.

Robo3t test connection

Step 4 : Set .env file variable.

Now we need to set database configuration into .env file.

#--- Database Connecton --------------------------------------#
MONGO_DB_DATABASE="Your database name"

Step 5 : Put this line into each model file.

use Jenssegers\Mongodb\Eloquent\Model as Eloquent;
protected $collection = 'users_collection';

Example of user model like this.


use Jenssegers\Mongodb\Eloquent\Model as Eloquent;

class User extends Eloquent {

    protected $collection = 'users_collection';


If you want to user query bilder DB then you can set like this.

The driver plug right into the original query builder with MongoDB database.

When using MongoDB connections, you will be able to build fluent queries to perform MongoDB database operations.

For your benefit, there is a collection alias for table as well as some supplemental mongodb particular operations.

$users = DB::collection('users')->get();
$user = DB::collection('users')->where('email', '')->first();

If you did not change your default database connection, then you will need to particular id when querying.

$user = DB::connection('mongodb')->collection('users')->get();

Get All Documents

$users = User::all();

You can get single record using primary key

$user = User::find('517c44667HKl88101e05500f');

Where Constion

$users = User::where('read', '>', 100)->take(10)->get();

Now you can add multiple of record into MongoDB database without any limit.

MongoDB database data retrieval speed is good.

I hope it can help you.
