This is my problem: Fatal error: Call to undefined function: mssql_connect()
I realise that I have to configure PHP/Apache to work with Mssql, but my attempts to do this have all failed.
My webserver is running on a recent Mandrake distribution. It is Apache 2.0.48 and PHP 4.3.4. If you want to see my phpinfo, look at http://www.quadplex.com/test.php
. I am very new to Linux, so doing simple things take a long time. To enable mysql, i installed an rpm. To enable mssql, I have tried the following:
*Installed the following rpm: http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat/4/idpl/1406112/com/php5-mssql-5.0.1-1mdk.i586.rpm.html
. I realised though that this was intended for php5 which may be why it doesnt work.
. This is intended for php 4.3.2, I have 4.3.4, but I could not find an RPM for this.
*Configured php.ini to include the extension file mssql.so. I know this is the right place to do so, cause when I remove the mysql extension here, mysql stops functioning.
Do I have to recompile Apache or PHP? If so, I have never really done that. Apache and PHP came ready with the Mandrake distribution. I should add that there are many users of my website, so if I have to stop it and recompile it, it has to go fast, in other words I have to know what Im doing.
The reason I want to add mssql is that I want to host another website as well, which connects to an MsSQL database.
Thank you for all your help.
