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


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/config/rhel/6/prod.repo | sudo tee /etc/yum.repos.d/mssql-tools.repo
    • sudo ACCEPT_EULA=Y yum install msodbcsql mssql-tools
    • sudo yum install unixODBC-devel
    • echo 'export PATH="$PATH:/opt/mssql-tools/bin"' >> ~/.bash_profile
    • echo 'export PATH="$PATH:/opt/mssql-tools/bin"' >> ~/.bashrc
    • source ~/.bashrc
  2. Install tools used for PECL
    • $ sudo yum install php71w-devel php71w-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 4.0.8.
      • $ 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
