Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have looked and looked and google has so far failed to help. I tried enabling the modules, but I just can't get MSSQL to run with WAMP. It keeps telling me that it the function mssql_connect() is undefined. Does anyone know how to set up MSSQL with WAMP? The MSSQL server is on a different machine.

I'm not sure, but I think PHP must be compiled -with-mssql / some .dll's must be downloaded. –  JanL Aug 3 '11 at 19:07

Try adding this to your php.ini file:


This library contains the mssql functions such as mssql_connect(). Also, make sure php_mssql.dll is in the extensions folder.

The problem is I'm using php5.3 and this has been removed, so what can I use instead? –  Peter Aug 3 '11 at 19:53
