Once you have the client interface ready in your application, you can begin to operate on OrientDB servers and databases. In order to administer the server, you first need to connect to it.
When you need to perform server operations, instantiate the client interface using credentials that can access your OrientDB Server, then issue the
connect() method to establish a connection to the server.
require "vendor/autoload.php"; use PhpOrient\PhpOrient; // INITIALIZE CLIENT $client = new PhpOrient('localhost' 2424); // CONFIGURE CONNECTION $client->username = 'root'; $client->password = 'root_passwd'; // CONNECT $client->connect();
When your application gets to this point, the
$client variable is now connected to the OrientDB Server and able to perform various operations.
NOTE: There are several methods available to you in initializing a client connection. For more information on the available methods, see Client Connections.
The client interface provides a number of methods for database and server operations. The table below provides a list of methods for server operations, specifically in creating, opening, listing and removing databases on the server.
