Microsoft Contributes PHP Extension

By Deane Barker on October 16, 2007

SQL Server 2005 Driver for PHP: Lo and behold, Microsoft has written a PHP extension. It’s a data access component for SQL Server…which PHP already has, so I guess I’m not sure how it improves things, but it’s pretty cool coming from Microsoft, anyway.

The SQL Server Driver for PHP is designed to enable reliable, scalable integration with SQL Server for PHP applications deployed on the Windows platform. The Driver for PHP is a PHP 5 extension that allows the reading and writing of SQL Server data from within PHP scripts.

Now, add this together with FastCGI support Microsoft announced earlier this year, and you have a compelling development platform on Windows (…but, we already had that, so I don’t know how this makes things better…still, it’s the thought that counts).
