  • You will see an error message explaining why PHP and MongoDB cannot connect and what you need to do to fix it
  • You will see a bunch of MongoDB-related options, including a selection of databases (by default, the admin and local databases always exist) - if this is the case your installation was successful and your problem is within the PHP code that you are using to access MongoDB, troubleshoot that from the MongoDB docs on php.net
