    Unhappy FreeTDS between PHP and MSSQL Server 2005?

    Hi, I am trying to open a connection between a PHP page and MSSQL Server 2005 (as opposed to MySQL).

    I found a tool online that seems to accomplish this called "FreeTDS" (I'm new and can't post links so you'll need to Google it, but it's easy enough to find!)

    However, I get conflicting messages on this site as to whether the program supports SQL Server 2005.

    Has anyone worked with this program and had success establishing a connection with MSSQL Server 2005?

    Thanks so much, I really appreciate it.

    PHP has support for MSSQL Server 2005.

    Do you have any idea why people would be using these tools, then?

    It has been my understanding that the mssql function built into php has some issues with certain things that are not affected with FreeTDS.
