A fast solution may be in the connection string modification. I'm not
familiar with the PHP version, but there should be to way to issue a:
SET TRANSACTION ISOLATION LEVEL READ UNCOMMITTED
So you have no longer the blocking problem. BUT: you have to check
what is a transaction and do the proper adjustments to your php code.
-Remember no COMMITS while there is a pending SELECT...
-What really really need to be in a transaction...
-etc, etc, etc.
A definitive solution: use MySQL... just kidding my friends, just

[Further to Brian's helpful reply.]
There's not much to go on here. See if the connection maintained by
your Apache server is being closed on the server. If there's a SPID,
does it go away when the server is stopped? Also, is there any
between the web and database servers? That could prevent the server
from detecting the client's demise.
It is possible to disconnect rudely from a Microsoft server and leave
the SPID in place. I have seen this happen with Microsoft's drivers
Like Brian, I suspect that the problem with not being able to do
is that the server process begins an update, the Apache process ends
prematurely, but the server process does not. That would leave the
transaction uncommitted and the locks in place, blocking further
updates. Your DBA should be able to confirm.
A TDSDUMP of the session might shed some light.
