Hi Friends,

I am developing a page in PHP which uses MS SQL Server database. Right now I am developing on Windows Platform. I am using mssql_xxx functions for dealing with database.

My PHP page is going to be hosted on Unix/Linux and MS SQL Server will be on Windows.

We use PHP 4 and MS SQL Server will be 2005.

So the problem is that I have read somewhere that mssql_xxx functions don't work while you are hosting PHP page on Unix/Linux, you have to use ODBC. Is that right?

Please make me understand.
