I'm attempting to install freetds on my Debian 3.1 (sarge).  Using
apt-get, I've installed freetds and configured freetds.conf with:

        host =
        tds version = 7.0

I can connect using sqsh, so I think I'm okay so far.

Then I installed php4-odbc but have not been successful connecting via
PHP4. When I run the following code:

print_r("we are trying to connect");
$connect = odbc_connect("psi", "sa", "cibsigcib") or die ("couldn't


I get the following error:

we are trying to connect
Warning: odbc_connect(): SQL error: [unixODBC][Driver Manager]Data
source name not found, and no default driver specified, SQL state IM002
in SQLConnect in /var/www/eve/index.php on line 6
couldn't connect

What am I doing wrong?

Any and all help appreciate.
