Connection Error

Recommended Posts

I was an ASP programmer and now trying to convert to php.  I cannot get my driver to connect to the database.  The issue is the same if I use PDO or the older method. 


Here is the connection string...


try {
  # MS SQL Server and Sybase with PDO_DBLIB
  $DBH = new PDO("mssql:host=$hostname; dbname=$database;" , $username, $password);
  echo "Connected to Test<br>";
catch(PDOException $e) {
    echo "Error=" . $e->getMessage();


Here is the result...

Error=could not find driver


I have found this page and done everything on it but still does not connect....



Any ideas?
