You should be able to install the module by running as root:

yum install php-mssql

Open in new window

I am using redhat enterprise Linux 6.4 and couldn't find when used yum install php-mssql

It's not in the standard repository but it is supposed to be in the EPEL repository.  More info about installing and using EPEL here:   You should know that php-mssql and freetds are fairly old packages and they don't support some of the newer datatypes in newer versions of SQL Server.
