Configuring MS SQL Server 2005 to work with xampp


Recommended Posts

  • 1 month later...


I am running MS SQL Server 2005 Workgroup Edition on Windows 2003 with PHP 5.  I could not connect to a MS SQL database using mssql_pconnect(); until I read a post from ashraf (aat) ametry.com on 01-May-2006 01:25.  However, my fix was simply to:


1. Replace the ntwdblib.dll with the one from http://webzila.com/dll/1/ntwdblib.zip in my c:\php5 folder.


2. Restart IIS


REASON: The ntwdblib.dll should be version 2000.80.194.0, and not version 2000.2.8.0 that PHP 5 ships with.


Thank you ashraf for posting your note, however, changing the php.ini file value mssql.secure_connection = On did not work.  I left it mssql.secure_connection = Off and that worked (the default to connect through NT/Windows Authentication)
