If you want to use mssql with php, it is easy.
Open php.ini file in your php root folder of your localhost (for examle, in vertrigo server, C:/…/Vertrigo server/php/php.ini) and edit this line: ;extension=php_mssql.dll. Delete ‘;’ this and save document. Then download from internet php_mssql.dll for php , then copy this file to the php root folder of your localhost. restart the server. Mssql connection now will work finely. All mysql functions works as mssql functions. You just need to change ‘y’ to ‘s’. 🙂 For example mysql_connect -> mssql_connect.
