Use PHP and PDO to connect to MS SQL Server (Zend Framework)

Problems connecting to MS SQL server from Zend Framework?

Message: The mssql driver is not currently installed

Solution is simple

Install pdo_mssql driver: (Ubuntu)

#sudo apt-get install php5-sybase
#sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

On Centos you need to install pdo_dblib (any problems check here)

It will not reflect in phpinfo() page

Trick is to setup connection properly:

$dbAdapter = new Zend_Db_Adapter_Pdo_Mssql(array(
 'host'     => '', // parklife
 'username' => 'xxx',
 'password' => 'xxx',
 'dbname'   => 'xxx',
'pdoType'  =>  'dblib' )
