It is very odd that sqsh works and PHP does not....Have you set the SYBASE
environment variable in your httpd.conf (SetEnv directive) or on the
command line before launching apache? Also LD_LIBRARY_PATH may need to be
set to /usr/local/freetds/lib (or wherever you install it). Another thing
you can try is to compile PHP as a CGI module and run it directly to see
if it works, if it does it is definately an environment problem.
