Hey there!

To connect to MongoDB you would need to add "ext-mongodb": "*" to the require { ... } section of your composer.json. You would then need to run composer update to regenerate your composer.lock file.

DigitalOcean MongoDB instances require connecting with a CA certificate. You can use bind variables to inject it by creating an environment variable like: CA_CERT=${db-mongodb-nyc1-12345.CA_CERT}.

Hope this helps! Nate
