Introducing the Microsoft Drivers for PHP for SQL Server

SQL Server 2008 R2

The Microsoft Drivers for PHP for SQL Server is a PHP 5 extension that provides data access to SQL Server 2005 and later versions. The extension provides a procedural interface (the SQLSRV driver) and an object-oriented interface (the PDO_SQLSRV driver) for accessing data in all versions (including Express) beginning with SQL Server 2005 (support for PHP for SQL Server version 3.1 (preview) begins with SQL Server 2008). The Microsoft Drivers for PHP for SQL Server API includes support for Windows Authentication, transactions, parameter binding, streaming, metadata access, and error handling.

To use the Microsoft Drivers for PHP for SQL Server versions 2.0 and 3.0, you must have SQL Server Native Client installed on the same computer PHP is running. For version 3.1 (preview), you must have the Microsoft ODBC Driver 11 (or higher) for SQL Server Client installed on the same computer PHP is running. For more information, see System Requirements (Microsoft Drivers for PHP for SQL Server).
