Connect to MS SQL Server via Linux Apache PHP

Connect to MS SQL Server via Linux Apache PHP

Connecting from a Linux Box based Apache PHP to Windows MS SQL server might be a rare scenario but if you want to achive that without recompiling PHP and Apache, here is what to do:

1. Go to http://www.freetds.org/ and download the latest package. Unpack it, change to the directory where the sources are located and

# ./configure –prefix=/usr/local/freetds –enable-msdblib
# make
# make install

2. Check your PHP version on your server. If you don t know how, look at this

3. Download the same PHP sources package. Go to http://php.net/releases/ and get the sources.

Unpack, locate /ext folder and make sure there are the following subfolders : /mssql ( in case you are still used to old mysql_ functions ) and /pdo_dblib if you user PDO style development.

4. Go into /mssql folder and :

# phpize
# ./configure –with-mssql=/usr/local/freetds
# make
# make install

This will create mssql.so extension and put it in your php extension dir

5. Go into /pdo_dlib and :

# phpize
# ./configure –with-pdo-dblib=/usr/local/freetds
# make
# make install

This will create pdo_dblib.so extension and put it in your php extension dir

6. Edit php.ini , find extensions section and add

extension=mssql.so

extension=pdo_dblib.so

7. Restart the web server ( httpd )
