Query performance can be affected by many different factors. This article introduces another best practice of how and how not to use a function within your T-SQL statements. MS SQL PHP Generator allows you to customize the HTML appearance of the result scripts such as header/footer, font settings and background color for each element, body background image, table background color, etc. Preview is also available. Powerful Smarty PHP template engine lets you customize appearance independent from database data. Step 3 is a proof of concept, which shows how you can connect to SQL Server using PHP. The basic examples demonstrate selecting and inserting data. Using the buffered cursor is 'more equivalent' than using the static or keyset cursors to simple mssqlquery calls, since it caches the entire result set in client memory.

Introduction

The Microsoft Drivers for PHP for SQL Server are designed to enable reliable, scalable integration with SQL Server for PHP applications on Windows, Linux, and macOS platforms. The drivers are PHP extensions that allow reading from and writing to SQL Server databases in all editions of SQL Server (including Express editions) within PHP scripts. Two drivers are available: The SQLSRV driver provides a procedural interface for interacting with SQL Server. The PDO_SQLSRV driver implements PHP's object-oriented PDO interface for working with databases.

The drivers' application programming interface (API) includes support for Active Directory authentication, transactions, parameter binding, streaming, metadata access, Unicode data handling, and error handling. The drivers rely on the Microsoft ODBC Driver for SQL Server to communicate with SQL Server. The drivers also support Microsoft SQL Azure Database, enabling developers to build PHP applications with relational capabilities using SQL Azure Database.

The Microsoft Drivers for PHP for SQL Server download is freely available to all SQL Server users. Releases and source code for the drivers are available from the Github project page. Full documentation for the drivers is available on Microsoft Docs; what follows is a brief overview of installation and configuration on Windows and IIS.

System Requirements

Full details on the system requirements for all supported versions of the driver can be found on the system requirements page. The following software is required:

  • On the client machine:
    • A supported Windows, Linux, or macOS operating system
    • A supported version of PHP
    • A supported version of the Microsoft ODBC Driver for SQL Server
    • A Web server configured to run PHP
  • On the server:
    • A supported version of SQL Server or Azure SQL Database

Install the Drivers

The Microsoft Drivers for PHP for SQL Server can be installed using the Web Platform Installer. To download and install the drivers manually instead, perform the following steps:

  1. Download and run the installation package from the appropriate link on the download page.

  2. Enter a directory to extract the package into when prompted.

  3. Open the directory you chose in step 3 and copy the required dll libraries to your PHP extension directory. The filenames indicate which PHP version, threadedness, and architecture each dll file is for. For example, php_sqlsrv_73_ts_x64.dll is the 64-bit SQLSRV driver for thread-safe (ts) PHP 7.3.

  4. Download and install the Microsoft ODBC Driver for SQL Server from the appropriate link on the ODBC download page.

  5. Edit your php.ini file to add the following lines in the Extensions section:

    Substitute the names of the files you copied to your PHP extension directory as required. Full instructions for loading the drivers can be found here.

  6. Start a command prompt as administrator and run iisreset to restart your IIS server.

Configure the Drivers

  1. Retrieve the current configuration settings for the SQLSRV driver using the sqlsrv_get_config function, or for the PDO_SQLSRV driver using the PDO::getAttribute function.

  2. Change the configuration settings for the SQLSRV driver using the sqlsrv_configure function, or for the PDO_SQLSRV driver using the PDO::setAttribute function.

  3. Ensure that the drivers are loaded and verify the configuration settings by running a script that calls the phpinfo() function:

    1. Open a text file, and copy the following code into it:

    2. Save the file as info.php in the IIS root directory.

    3. Open a browser, and go to http://localhost/info.php.

    4. Scroll down the resulting page to find the sqlsrv and pdo_sqlsrv sections. Confirm that the drivers are loaded and the configuration settings are set to the default values (see Figure 1).

Create a Connection to the Database

When using the SQLSRV driver, the sqlsrv_connect() function is used to establish a connection to the server. When using the PDO_SQLSRV driver, the PDO::__construct function is used to establish a connection to the server.

Connections can be made using Windows authentication, SQL Server authentication, or Azure Active Directory authentication. The default is to use Windows authentication. In most scenarios, this means that the Web server's process identity or thread identity (if the Web server is using impersonation) is used to connect to the server, not a user's identity.

The Microsoft Drivers for PHP for SQL Server enable integration with SQL Server for PHP applications. The drivers are PHP extensions that allow the reading and writing of SQL Server data from within PHP scripts. The drivers provide interfaces for accessing data in Azure SQL Database and in all editions of SQL Server 2012 and later (including Express Editions). The drivers make use of PHP features, including PHP streams, to read and write large objects.

On Linux and macOS, the drivers for PHP are easily downloaded and installed using PECL. See the Linux and macOS installation tutorial for details. If you need to download and install the drivers for PHP on Linux and macOS manually, packages for those platforms can be found on the GitHub release tags.
