Dreamweaver doesn't support MS SQL with PHP natively.  You can fake it with pdo_dblib

Not sure what you want to do exactly.
To run php on Windows, download and install XAMPP (Free)

To put the code into DW CS5 to make it connect on your website see:

Glenn,

I think the asker is trying to use the built-in server behaviors with PHP and MS-SQL.

Defining dynamic templates


You can create templates that are based on dynamic document types. These templates are called dynamic templates. The following two elements are essential to defining a dynamic template:

The value of the internaltype attribute for the new document type must be DWTemplate.
The dynamicid attribute must be set, and the value must be a reference to the identifier of an existing dynamic document type.
The following example defines a dynamic document type:
<documenttype
    id="PHP_MySQL"
    servermodel="PHP MySQL"
    internaltype="Dynamic"
    winfileextension="php,php3"
    macfileextension="php,php3"
    file="Default.php">
    <title>PHP</title>
    <description><![CDATA[PHP document]]></description>
</documenttype>
Now, you can define the following dynamic template, which is based on this PHP_MySQL dynamic document type:
<documenttype
    id="DWTemplate_PHP"
    internaltype="DWTemplate"
    dynamicid="PHP_MySQL"
    winfileextension="php.dwt"
    macfileextension="php.dwt"
    file="Default.php.dwt">
    <title>PHP Template</title>
    <description><![CDATA[Dreamweaver PHP Template document]]></description>
</documenttype>
When a Dreamweaver user creates a new blank template of type DWTemplate_PHP, Dreamweaver lets the user create PHP server behaviors in the file. Furthermore, when the user creates instances of the new template, the user can create PHP server behaviors in the instance.

In the previous example, when the user saves the template, Dreamweaver automatically adds a .php.dwt extension to the file. When the user saves an instance of the template, Dreamweaver adds the .php extension to the file.
