Install / Enable PHP MsSQL Extension in cPanel/WHM Server

FreeTDS is a set of libraries for Unix and Linux that allows your programs to natively talk to Microsoft SQL Server and Sybase databases.

Technically speaking, FreeTDS is an open source implementation of the TDS (Tabular Data Stream) protocol used by these databases for their own clients. It supports many different flavors of the protocol and three APIs to access it. Additionally FreeTDS works with other software such as Perl and PHP, providing access from those languages as well.

For enabling mssql support in PHP on cpanel/WHM installed server we can’t use easyapache in this case,  we need FreeTDS installed and configured which is a set of Unix/Linux libraries that implement the TDS protocol. I needed a solution that would be simple to maintain — in other words, something that didn’t have to be done over and over each time PHP was upgraded.

First we will need to download and install FreeTDS, you can find more information and download link at http://www.freetds.org URL. Note the exact installation steps below :

Packages :
  1. unixODBC
  2. freeTDS
  3. mssql.so

step :1  unixODBC

yum install  unixODBC unixODBC-devel

Step :2  freeTDS

cd /usr/local/src
wget http://ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/ALPHA/freetds/stable/freetds-stable.tgz
tar zfvx freetds-stable.tgzcd freetds-*;
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/freetds --with-tdsver=8.0 --enable-msdblib --enable-dbmfix --with-gnu-ld; make ; make install 
echo "--with-mssql=/usr/local/freetds" >> /var/cpanel/easy/apache/rawopts/all_php5
touch /usr/local/freetds/lib/libtds.a
touch /usr/local/freetds/include/tds.h

Use this line if you get any error like no such file or directory

ln -s /usr/include/sqlext.h /usr/local/include/sqlext.h

If it it is a 64 bit server then make the following softlink

ln -s /usr/local/freetds/lib/  /usr/local/freetds/lib64

Step :3  mssql.so

Now, recompile PHP/Apache through EasyApache. It’s OK to use the same options as previous, because MSSQL isn’t an option in EasyApache that can be toggled on and off; we did it manually (and permanently) in the last step.

Verify your work by checking phpinfo() for the mssql section.


 Now you can check Mysql enabled

root@server [~]# php --info |grep  "mssql"
MSSQL Support => enabled
