PHP 5.2.8

MS SQL server 2008  remote connection turned on

in php.ini      extension=php_mssql.dll


simple code:


// Server in the this format: <computer>\<instance name> or

// <server>,<port> when using a non default port number


// $server = '(local)\V';

//$server = '.\SQLEXPRESSLMKIII';

$link = mssql_connect($server, "sa", "xoxoxoxo");




    die('Something went wrong while connecting to MSSQL');
