i have setup PHP to run on IIS with no issues, but am now trying to connect to MS SQL 2005 and am having issues, i have tried several different code samples and just get a blank page, I ran PHP from C:\PHP in a command prompt and got the below 2 errors, which i am guessing is part of the problem, just not sure how to fix - what do i need to do?

c:\PHP>php
PHP Warning:  PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library 'C:\php5\php_mssql.dll
' - The specified module could not be found.
 in Unknown on line 0
PHP Warning:  PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library 'C:\php5\php_wincache.
dll' - The specified module could not be found.
 in Unknown on line 0

It looks like you are missing the DLL files

you should have a folder called ext in your PHP root directory.  This is where teh above dll's need to be.  Once they are copied restart IIS.

I acually got mine from version 5.2.14 , You could take teh DLL from taht and give it a try.  You are probably using 5.3

here is a link that may help
