Connection Problem of PHP 4.0, Apache and MSSQL 2k.

Hi all,

  I have tried hard to connect sql server with php4.0.

  but every time I got one error.

  $hostname = "myServer";
  $username = "sa";
  $password = "";
  MSSQL_CONNECT($hostname,$username,$password) or DIE  
  ("DATABASE FAILED TO RESPOND.");

--> Fatal error: Call to undefined function: mssql_connect() in F:\Appache\HtDocs\test...

Win2k, SQL Server 2k, PHP 4.0.
The connection params are valid and ntwdblib.dll exist in the system directory.
I have i uncommented the extension=php_mssql70.dll line in php.ini at sys root file.

ur suggetion will highly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

 Rajesha.

Junior guessing but, has the server been restarted since the introduction of the mssql settings in php.ini?

If so, if you use

<?php phpinfo(); ?>

Do you get settings regarding the MSSQL connection?


Also, is the case of the function correct? I know that PHP is case sensitive for variables, what about functions too?

mssql_connect(...)

rather than

MSSQL_CONNECT(...)

maybe.

Regards,

Richard Quadling.

Hi RQuadling ,

   I have use the correct case for mssql_connect() function i.e. in lower case.

Also I had restared the appache after the php.ini had been edited.

 I want to know that, If run <?php phpinfo(); ?>

 what setting regarding the sql server  should I get ?

 Thanks for your response.

 Regards
 Rajesha.

the mssql extension functions are not available
remove the ;
extension=php_mssql.dll

in your php.ini
