Logging on to an external MS SQL database
To log on to an external MS SQL database, the hosting must only be on a Cloud Server.
Then we offer, on request, 3 solutions:
- MSSQL (cf. http://php.net/manual/en/intro.mssql.php) for PHP 5.3, 5.4, 5.5 and 5.6 (incompatible with 7.0)
- PDO_DBLIB for PHP 5.6 and 7.0 only
- PDO_ODBC for PHP 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6 and 7.1 (Debian Wheezy only)
We only install one of these alternatives (preferably PDO_ODBC).
