The SQL Server Driver for PHP is now available in the Web Platform Installer 2.0 beta



For those who are not already aware of the Web Platform Installer (WPI), it’s a great tool for setting up a Windows machine for Web app development and deployment.  You can download the beta of WPI 2.0 or the WPI 1.0 release here.


 


PHP itself is available via the WPI 2.0 beta.  Installing PHP through the WPI 2.0 beta also automatically configures FastCGI as part of the installation.  Mai-lan from the API team has a great blog post here with more information about installing PHP via WPI.


 


I’m pleased to announce that the SQL Server Driver for PHP is also now available in the Web Platform Installer 2.0 beta.  Enjoy!

    I noticed this yesterday when setting up a new server environment. It was a pleasant surprise in not having to manually install the driver.
