    The extension requires the MS SQL Client Tools to be installed    on the system where PHP is installed. The Client Tools can    be installed from the MS SQL Server CD or by copying    ntwdblib.dll from     \winnt\system32 on the server to    \winnt\system32 on the PHP box.    Copying ntwdblib.dll will only provide access    through named pipes.    Configuration of the client will require installation of all the tools.      


    Requirements for Unix/Linux platforms.      
    To use the MSSQL extension on Unix/Linux, you first need to build and     install the FreeTDS library. Source code and installation instructions     are available at the FreeTDS home page:     » http://www.freetds.org/   



The MSSQL extension is enabled by adding extension=php_mssql.dll to   php.ini.  



Write <? phpinfo() ?> to view your configuration and to be sure that MSSQL Extension is properly installed.
