sql server

To connect to SQL Server from Linux use this command to install the driver:

$ sudo yum install -y php-mssql

For example, to php5.6:

$ sudo yum install -y php56w-mssql

This command installs freetds , a collection of libraries to connect to SQL Server from Linux. With this library we can not only connect from Php, but from the command line with the tsql program.

After installing, do not forget to restart apache:

$ sudo apachectl restart

Happy coding 🙂
