As part of SQL Server’s ongoing interoperability program, we are pleased to announce an updated Microsoft SQL Server driver for PHP. The new driver, which supports PHP 5.6, is now available!
This driver allows developers who use the PHP scripting language to access Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft Azure SQL Database, and to take advantage of new features implemented in ODBC. The new version works with Microsoft ODBC Driver 11 or higher.
You can download the PHP driver here. We invite you to explore the rest of the latest the Microsoft Data Platform has to offer via a trial evaluation of Microsoft SQL Server 2014, or by trying the new preview of Microsoft Azure SQL Database.
