Enabling Azure MSSQL Server ODBC
At Scriptcase, we have the following drivers available for connection to Azure MSSQL Server: MSSQL Server NATIVE SRV, MSSQL Server NATIVE SRV PDO and MSSQL Server ODBC . If you are using your own pre-configured environment, the MSSQL Server extensions must be enabled manually in PHP.
Before proceeding with this documentation, check your PHP architecture. For drivers to be enabled correctly, files must be downloaded according to the architecture used.
- In your Scriptcase, there is the file info.php, access it by the URL:
http://127.0.0.1:8091/scriptcase/info.php, where you will find the information regarding the architecture in phpinfo().
NOTE: If you are using Scriptcase’s automatic installer, the PHP architecture will be the same as the one you downloaded. Download Microsoft ODBC Driver 11 For SQL Server according to your PHP architecture .
- Architecture x86 = 32 bits
- Architecture x64 = 64 bits
Listed below are the necessary files for the drivers to be enabled.

if you need to use Database Identifiers in or tables, we recommend using the double quotation marks( “ ) instead of the brackets( [ ] ) because of the conflict with the Global Variables syntax of Scriptcase. Using the brackets as database identifiers may lead to problems in the Scriptcase applications.
