beginning_php thread: Can php talks to Microsoft SQL server?


Message #1 by seeshulee@y... on Thu, 11 Jan 2001 11:10:55 -0000
Hello,



  I would like to know if I can write php program to do web database

access to MS SQL server?



  Also if php can run on Windows, beside UNIX/LINUX?

Message #2 by Gregory_Griffiths@c... on Thu, 11 Jan 2001 11:45:40 +0000
I believe that the answer is YES to both, I think PHP can use ODBC to 

connect to MS SQL Server, as for running on Windows, I know it does, 

because I use it on a Windows 98 platform, although I think that like 

Perl it may be a little different in terms of functions.

I think it is possible to work with MS SQL, probably through an ODBC

connection.

And you can easily install php on windows with IIS and also with PWS (or an

even better alternative xitami !)

Hi there,



Php can talk to MS SQL Server. You can find more info @

http://www.php.net/manual/ref.mssql.php



You can also install php on windows. Go to

http://www.nusphere.com/download/download_now.htm and download the latest

version. It will automatically install php and the apache web server on

your pc.



Good Luck,

Rick
