There are two different drivers you can use to connect to Microsoft SQL. We highly recommend the sqlsrv driver over dblib/freetds. However dblib/freetds is still supported.

SQLSRV

Note: These instructions were adapted from the official Microsoft PHP SQLSRV repo on Github[1]. Please consult this repo for additional information about this driver and its implementation options.

  1. Install the ODBC 13 Driver (only support on Ubuntu 15 and 16)
    • $ curl https://packages.microsoft.com/keys/microsoft.asc | sudo apt-key add -
    • $ sudo sh -c 'curl https://packages.microsoft.com/config/ubuntu/16.04/prod.list > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mssql-release.list'
    • $ sudo apt-get update
    • $ sudo ACCEPT_EULA=Y apt-get install msodbcsql unixodbc-dev
  2. Install tools used for PECL
    • $ sudo apt-get install php7.1-dev php-pear
  3. Install sqlsrv and pdo_sqlsr using PECL
    • sqlsrv on PECL is has been released from development to stable. As of the writing of these instructions, the latest verison 4.3.0.
      • $ sudo pecl install sqlsrv
      • $ sudo pecl install pdo_sqlsrv
  4. Create the ini files
    • $ sudo sh -c 'echo "extension=sqlsrv.so" > /etc/php/7.1/mods-available/sqlsrv.ini'
    • $ sudo sh -c 'echo "extension=pdo_sqlsrv.so" > /etc/php/7.1/mods-available/pdo_sqlsrv.ini'
  5. Enable the extensions in PHP
    • $ sudo phpenmod sqlsrv pdo_sqlsrv
  6. Restart the PHP-FPM and Nginx or Restart Apache (whichever solution you're using.)
    • Nginx
      • $ sudo service php7.1-fpm restart && sudo service nginx restart
    • Apache
      • $ sudo  service apache2 restart

DBLIB/FreeTDS
