These PHP functions allow you to access MS SQL Server database by using freetds.

This tutorial will work with php 5.3.29 - php 5.6.40 only for php 7.x use sqlsrv which is already in php options.

To build MSSQL with php 5.6/5.x.x just follow this steps :

Run this commands one by one (this will install freetds and its header files) :

yum install -y freetds freetds-devel freetds-libs
ln -s /usr/lib64/ /usr/lib/
ln -s /usr/lib64/ /usr/lib64/

Now go to php selector/php-fpm selector and hit "Reset options" under php 5.6 (or 5.x.x) and add this to "Manual options" config then save it :


Next step is to choose the mssql option with your desired php ext options from "Select Options" and hit save custom config go "Back" and click on "Start Compiler (build & install)" wait for the php build and check php info.
