PHP Question

Connecting to sql server data with PHP on ubuntu

When trying to connect to my mssql database, I get the error
"SQLSTATE[01002] Adaptive Server connection failed (severity 9)"

Below is the php code I'm running

<?php

try {
$hostname = "hostname.database.windows.net";
$port = 1433;
$dbname = "database-dev";
$username = "dbuser";
$pw = "dbpassword";
$dbh = new PDO ("dblib:host=$hostname:$port;dbname=$dbname","$username","$pw");
} catch (PDOException $e) {
echo "Failed to get DB handle: " . $e->getMessage() . "\n";
exit;
}
$stmt = $dbh->prepare("select name from master..sysdatabases where name = db_name()");
$stmt->execute();
while ($row = $stmt->fetch()) {
print_r($row);
}
unset($dbh); unset($stmt);
?>


And below is my odbc.ini, odbcinst.ini and freetds.conf, you can see my phpinfo() here ("http://wingedw.com/matiks/connect.php") the driver is set to freetds and the pdo and pdo_dlib modules have been added to php 5, any clues as to why im getting error, im sure the credentials are right.

odbc.ini

[MSSQLServer]
Driver = FreeTDS
Description = Any description
Trace = No
Server = servername
Port = 1433
Database = dbname
wTDS_Verison = 7.1


odbcinst.ini

[FreeTDS]
Driver = /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/odbc/libtdsodbc.so
Setup = /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/odbc/libtdsS.so
UsageCount = 1


freetds.conf

[global]
# TDS protocol version
; tds version = 7.1

# Whether to write a TDSDUMP file for diagnostic purposes
# (setting this to /tmp is insecure on a multi-user system)
; dump file = /tmp/freetds.log
; debug flags = 0xffff

# Command and connection timeouts
; timeout = 100
; connect timeout = 100

# If you get out-of-memory errors, it may mean that your client
# is trying to allocate a huge buffer for a TEXT field.
# Try setting 'text size' to a more reasonable limit
text size = 64512

# A typical Sybase server
[egServer50]
host = symachine.domain.com
port = 5000
tds version = 7.1

# A typical Microsoft server
[MSSQLServer]
host = servername
port = 1433
tds version = 7.1

Answer

Turns out everything was configured correctly, the issue was using dblib over odbc, see code below.

try {
    $hostname = "hostname.database.windows.net";
    $port = 1433;
    $dbName = "databasename";
    $dbuser = "dbuser@hostname";
    $dbpass = "password";   
$dbh = new PDO('odbc:DRIVER=FreeTDS;SERVERNAME=mssql;DATABASE=' . $dbName,
          $dbuser, $dbpass);
  //echo "COnnected";

  } catch (PDOException $e) {
    echo "Failed to get DB handle: " . $e->getMessage() . "\n";
    exit;
 }
