During setup: can't select MS-SQL as DB server

Post by ramersdorfer » Thu Aug 26, 2010 9:36 pm

Hi,

it's the first time I try to install phpmyfaq (2.6.7) running on IIS and MS-SQL server. Did some setups with apache and mysql before.

When I run /install/setup.php the drop-down list for the sql server only shows:
MySQL 4.1x / 5.x / 6.x
Postgre/SQL
and again MySQL 4.1x ...

I checked the directory \inc\PMF_DB and there are 11 drivers, including mssql.php.

Any ideas what I did wrong?

Thanks for feedback, Thomas

Hi,

you need an activated MS SQL PHP extension. Please check your php.ini if your MS SQL extension is enabled. The setup checks this as well.

Ah, thanks for that hint.


As information:
With php 5.3, MS-SQL is no longer included by default - you have to download others drivers and the setup will become more complex.
So I decided to downgrade to php 5.2 where MS-SQL is supported by default.


Thanks, Thomas
