It's probably a stupid question, but we hawe used up all ouer resources
trying to fix it.
The picture is following;
We hawe 3 mashines, each is doing it's putpose, 1 Linux system with php4
working as webserver, 1 SUN netra working as database server (oracle,mysql)
and 1 Windows NT server running MS SQL 7.
We need to be abel access the SUN and NT machines database from Linux PC
thru PHP, as we hawe discovered, the PHP official line is: MS SQL IS ONLY
SUPPORTED ON NT OS.
While we surfed the net to find solution, we discovered free TDS, and found
comments that this solution fully works, so we started to try it.
After firs compilation with php and apache (witch was fully succesful, no
errors) we run small script, it tryed just to establish database connection
(mssql_connec), the result was totaly emty page and message in the log:
So we replased 4.2 version with 7.0.
Well, the only good to come from it was that there was no segmentation
faults, but instead, php reports bad password etc and in the logfile we
found curious error: no route to host, while we hawe access to it, tested
Since on of the projects is mission critical, and we need solution pretty
bad, i will apriciate any help i can get....
