Suggestions for a php/sybase sql server
Posted on 2007-10-14
I want to write a web interface for a Sybase DB running on a Netware 6.5 server. The database was set up when I installed Zenworks, and it hold workstation inventory. I have installed and used XAMPP before. I would really like to be able to write the interface using my current server setup, and from what I've seen on the web, it is possible to enable the sybase extensions for PHP, but I have not been able to get it to work.
Let me say that I know nothing about Linux, so please don't offer Linux solutions. The details of my current setup are:
Sybase ASA 8.0.2
running on Netware 6.5 SP6
Database is part of Zenworks (it holds workstation inventory)
Running these as part of XAMPP package on a Windows XP box.
The current setup works fine if I build a database in the MySQL DB on the localhost and access it from php webpages. I want to be able to do the same thing for a remote Sybase DB.
So, can anyone suggest either a way to configure my current setup (preferred) or build a new one (Windows-based) so I can do this? Also, at us.php.net they mention that to enable sybase commands in PHP I need to add '--with-sybase-ct' to the php configuration. I don't know where this line should go, I haven't found any configuration files for PHP except PHP.ini, and its not in there.
