PHP mssql_connect() not working on WIN5

    I've submitted a ticket for this problem a few days ago (41507) to get some missing PHP extensions installed (extensions that were there before the reinstallation).

    They were installed, but the MS SQL functions aren't working for some reason, the script pauses for 10 seconds and then reports it can't connect to the server. My code worked fine before the installation.

    PHP ODBC functions are a bit buggy and unfortunately I can't use them, so I need this module working :(

    I have enabled the extension and it should work after the next iisreset, whenever that may be.

    Hmmmkay, doesn't sound to logical to be honest..

    The extension is already loaded, it's just not connecting..
    This part of my website has been non functional for a week and a half now, how will I know when IIS has been restarted? :O

    It is giving a user/pass error, it is not hanging, the module is being found, are you sure the set password is correct?

    Edit: it turned out iis did not need to be restarted.

    We can look into the issue if you submit a ticket. At this point I don't even know who you are, what server your are on, etc.

    Oh, so you aren't a customer here. :)

    ntwdblib.dll needs to be in %wintdir%\system32 then reboot and see if it works.

    The problem is solved.I set allias in sql server's client utility,and make sure you are using Named Piped protocol.
    And I replace the dynamic library NTWDBLIB.DLL with the sql server's ntwdblib.dll in %windir%/system32.
    It work for me.

    Here is my code:

    // Server in the this format: <computer>\<instance name> or
    // <server>,<port> when using a non default port number
    //$server = '(local)';
    //$server = '.\SQLEXPRESSLMKIII';
    $link = mssql_connect($server, "sa", "x0x0x0x0x0x0x0");
    //$link = mssql_connect($server);

    die('Something went wrong while connecting to MSSQL');
    echo ("made it");

    XP Prof SP3
    MS SQL Server 2008
    PHP 5.2.8
    IIS 5.1

    I connected without many problems to MySQL and Oracle 11g1 under Fedora 9
