Problem: trying to install RPMs for RedHat EL, php-mssql. There does not appear to be a free open-source option for connecting to MSFT SQL Server database.

Has anyone had any luck with this?

  • What on earth is with the downvotes to the question and the answers?

  • I don't know.. I just upvoted them. I just saw this happened on a few questions that don't deserve it. I would speculate that it's a nefarious user...

I have not had any luck, although I did look at an ODBC/ODBC bridge. Note that this ODBC/ODBC bridge is not free for anything but a trial, but it seems very well supported.



The Sybase/MSSQL bindings are part of the core PHP distribution, you just need to build with the appropriate options. They're regular open-source.
