sqlsvr driver problems

I am trying to connect Azure database with PHP. I installed sqlsrv driver. It also appears in phpinfo as PDO drivers =

mysql, sqlite, sqlsrv

However, the below code is not working:

$serverName = "";

$connectionOptions = array("Database" => "master",

"UID" => "intelligaia",

"PWD" => "Maporamic7",

"MultipleActiveResultSets" => false);

$conn = sqlsrv_connect($serverName, $connectionOptions);

if($conn === false)


die(print_r(sqlsrv_errors(), true));


The reported error is:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function sqlsrv_connect() in C:\wamp\www\test.php on line 20

Looking for your support.

mmm, you better use odbc, make sure you have the azure odbc driver

here are some examples (goto start -> run -> enter odbcad32.exe and create a dsn(system or user) then in php you do

$connection = odbc_connect("DSN=TheNameYouHadEnterd",$username,$password);

$r_Results = odbc_exec($connection, "SELECT * FROM Table");

while($Row = odbc_fetch_array($r_Results)){

watch out with the while it is UNTESTED

Álvaro G. Vicario is right, ms provids this native drivers if you think you might ever migrate to another db(and you will) you should use pdo. her are:documentation and download but i would use the community edision(unless you are paying for support)
