Connect xampp to online MSSQL database via PDO in php

I've installed xampp on my computer.
When I try to connect it tells me


Error!: could not find driver


When I run my code on my webhost, it works.

Some info:


XAMPP 3.2.2

MSSQL Server 2012


I connect with the following code:

define("USER_NAME", "myusername");
define("DATABASE", "mydatabase");
define("PASSWORD", "mypassword");
define("HOST", "myhost");

try{
$db = new PDO("dblib:host=".HOST.";dbname=".DATABASE, USER_NAME, PASSWORD);
$db->setAttribute(PDO::ATTR_ERRMODE,PDO::ERRMODE_EXCEPTION);
}catch(PDOException $exception){
echo $exception->getMessage();
exit;
}


I've downloaded these files, dropped them in the ext folder and added the following lines to php.ini:

extension=php_dblib.dll
extension=php_sqlsrv_54_ts.dll
extension=php_pdo_sqlsrv_54_ts.dll

Answer

Change this

$db = new PDO("sqlsrv:Server=YouAddress;Database=YourDatabase", "Username", "Password");
