Making a Connection

To connect to the database server, use one of the following:

= new MongoClient(); // connects to localhost:27017
$connection = new MongoClient"mongodb://" ); // connect to a remote host (default port: 27017)
$connection = new MongoClient"mongodb://" ); // connect to a remote host at a given port

You do not have to explicitly disconnect from the database. The driver uses persistent connections and will re-use already established connections.
