How can I connect to Sybase using FreeTDS?
 
My freetds.conf

Code:

    # /usr/local/etc/freetds.conf
    #  $Id: freetds.conf,v 1.12 2007/12/25 06:02:36 jklowden Exp $
    #
    # This file is installed by FreeTDS if no file by the same
    # name is found in the installation directory. 
    #
    # For information about the layout of this file and its settings,
    # see the freetds.conf manpage "man freetds.conf". 
   
    # Global settings are overridden by those in a database
    # server specific section
    [global]
            # TDS protocol version
    ;        tds version = 4.2
   
            # Whether to write a TDSDUMP file for diagnostic purposes
            # (setting this to /tmp is insecure on a multi-user system)
            dump file = /tmp/freetds.log
    ;        debug flags = 0xffff
   
            # Command and connection timeouts
    ;        timeout = 10
    ;        connect timeout = 10
           
            # If you get out-of-memory errors, it may mean that your client
            # is trying to allocate a huge buffer for a TEXT field. 
            # Try setting 'text size' to a more reasonable limit
            text size = 64512
   
    # A typical Sybase server
    [egServer50]
            host = symachine.domain.com
            port = 5000
            tds version = 5.0
   
    # A typical Microsoft server
    [egServer70]
            host = ntmachine.domain.com
            port = 1433
            tds version = 7.0
   
    [myserver]
            host = myserver.com
            port = 5000
            tds version = 5.0

My `sybase.php`:

PHP Code:

    <?php
    
    $server 
'myserver';
    
$user   'user';
    
$pwd    'pwd';
    
$db     'db';
    
    @
sybase_connect($server$user$pwd) or die('Cannot connect');
    
    echo 
"OK\n";

It works just fine when I ran it through CLI, `php sybase.php`. But it won't connect when I ran it through webserver. **Does anyone has any idea what's wrong with my code?**

I've also tried putting

Code:

putenv("FREETDSCONF=/usr/local/etc/freetds.conf");
but nothing happens, I've even tried putting wrong path to `freetds.conf` before `sybase_connect()` and the code will still run fine (using `php sybase.php` but not through webserver).

BTW, I got these errors everytime I restart my apache:

Code:

    <br />
    <b>Warning</b>:  PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library '/usr/lib/php/extensions/php_sybase_ct.dll' - /usr/lib/php/extensions/php_sybase_ct.dll: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory in <b>Unknown</b> on line <b>0</b><br />
    <br />

I didn't uncomment `;extension=php_sybase_ct.dll` in my `php.ini` since I'm working in Linux. I've checked my `phpinfo()` and I can see `sybase_ct` section in it. I built my PHP using these arguments:

Code:

So do you actually have a bunch of Windows .dll's trying to interface to Sybase on your Linux server? That can't be good ;)

Q: Why do you believe you need FreeTDS at all? (I'm not arguing - maybe you do.)

Q: Is Sybase co-located on your Linux server, or is it on a remote host?

Q: Is this a paid version of Sybase? If so, have you contacted Sybase technical support?

1. I'm new to the whole Sybase thing, I'm just trying to get some data (just reading) from a remote server (not mine) which uses Sybase. From what I've gathered from Googling, it's the simplest way for me to make sure I can use sybase_connect() in PHP. I've tried db-lib which doesn't show in my phpinfo() at all, but I haven't tried the ODBC way. Ref: http://www.freetds.org/userguide/php.htm

2. It's located remotely.

3. It's a paid version. It's a very long process for me to gain the access to the server since it's not mine. I've to go through some bureaucracy problems just to get in the server. So, asking for more help would be my last step.
