In the code shown below i am trying to print out if the mssql function exists or not because i cant seem to use php to connect to a database and it always traces "MSSQL functions not available". I have uncommented the line: extension=php_mssql.dll  and restarted iis but still no luck.

Thx for help.
<?php
 
if (function_exists('mssql_fetch_row')) {
echo "MSSQL functions are available.<br />\n";
} else {
echo "MSSQL functions are not available.<br />\n";
}
?>

Hi,

check the php extension directory for the php_mssql.dll file.

It should be there.

Hope this will help you.

Regards

you need to have:
extension=php_mssql.dll in your php.ini file WITHOUT ';' before it.

Sorry just noticed you had already done that.

Run <?php phpinfo(); ?> to see if 'php_mssql' shows there.

I ran it and i searched for php_mssql (even searched for mssql) but it doesnt show anywhere, whats this mean?
Just as extra info btw it is installed on the server in C:\PHP not in windows system32 and i am changing the ini in the php.ini in that directory but i dont think this should matter.

OK, well this confirms that the extension is not being loaded by PHP.

What I'd suggest first is to check the paths shown at the top of the 'phpinfo' page to confirm that the paths there are correct. It should also show the extension path and path to php.ini there.

Once done, stop IIS and start it again if you've changed anything.

My configuration path was wrong and the phpinfo(); was enough to determine how to fix it.
