Introduction and Removal of PHP Driver for SQL Server 1.1 download links.


I should precede the following post with an introduction. I
recently started at Microsoft as the Program Manager for the PHP Driver for SQL
Server. Since then, I’ve
been ramping up on the many aspects of the job, not the least of which is
learning what makes the PHP community great!

With our release of the PHP Driver for SQL Server 2.0
driver last year, we are planning to remove download
links to the PHP Driver for SQL Server 1.1 May 31st 2011.
The PHP Driver
for SQL Server 2.0 release includes the Native APIs present in the PHP Driver
for SQL Server 1.1 release, as well as support for the PDO API.

Moving forward, the existing PHP Driver for SQL Server 1.1
download page will redirect to the PHP Driver for SQL Server 2.0 page. Please
contact us if there are any compatibility issues you come across
and we will work hard to resolve these.

I’d like to extend a hand to everyone and ask you to contact
us at our forums if you have any
problems with the existing version. Additionally, as we work on our next
version, we’d love to hear from you if you find that there is anything you think we should implement.

 

Thank you,

    Can we please get a PHP Driver for MS SQL 2008 Server, on the x64 platform, we are ready to deploy working x64

  2. Hi SQL_Progress:

    As there is no 64-bit PHP release available, we do not currently have support for the x64 platform.

    Thanks for the suggestion!
