I am very frustrated right now with go daddy and their services. I spent last week upgrading to IIS 7 and removing and restoring databases, so that I can use ms sql extensions in php.

I'm trying to create a very simple script that merely connects to the database server that I have, but all I'm getting is it saying that it can't connect to the server.

I know this information is correct because it's the same information that I use for a .NET connection string and it works just fine.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm desperate.
<?php
// Server in the this format: <computer>\<instance name> or 
// <server>,<port> when using a non default port number
error_reporting(E_ALL);
 
if (!function_exists('mssql_connect')) {
  echo 'mssql_connect not exist';
  exit;  
}
 
$server = 'ggcircuit.db.3438312.hostedresource.com';
 
$link = mssql_connect($server, 'ggcircuit', 'xxxxxx');
 
if(!$link)
{
    die('Something went wrong while connecting to MSSQL');
} else {
  echo 'aaaaaaaaaa';
}
 
?>

No, the mssql_connect function is not connecting to the database.

well in that case, all I can guess is, either you are providing wrong credentials or you don't have proper permission to connect to database, as long as syntax and method concern, it is perfact, there is no problem in it. Only GoDaddy people can help you.

Ok I hate GoDaddy for this cause they have a zillion links on every page and it's hard to explain to someone where to click. But here goes.

Signin to GoDaddy.
Click 'hosting' lefthand menu area
Click 'manage' for the domain of the database
Under Action column click the pencil 'Edit / View'
Then click the 'Configuration' button.

This will display your php connect code. You have to correct the password.

(your server string looks a little odd, not that it's not correct, but this will verify)
