Microsoft Drivers for PHP for SQL Server

The Microsoft Drivers for PHP for SQL Server provide connectivity to Microsoft SQL Server from PHP applications. In addition to some important bug fixes for the existing SQLSRV driver, version 2.0 release adds support for PDO with a new PDO_SQLSRV driver. The Microsoft Drivers for PHP for SQL Server are PHP 5 extensions that allows for the reading and writing of SQL Server data from within PHP scripts. The SQLSRV extension provides a procedural interface while the PDO_SQLSRV extension implements PDO for accessing data in all editions of SQL Server 2005 and later.

The major feature in the version 2.0 release is the support for PDO with a new PDO_SQLSRV driver. In order to support the new PDO_SQLSRV driver to be consistent with the existing SQLSRV driver, the code was re-architected into a core functional layer and an "API" layer above. The SQLSRV driver is built from this re-architected code, and also includes some important bug fixes. This release is available to all SQL Server users at no additional charge.

An update version (binary version 2.0.1802.200), released in November 2010 contains some critical fixes reported by our customers and developers. Please refer to the included SQLSRV_Readme file (or our blog) for additional details on the fixes.
