Connection to PDO DBLIB

In Scriptcase installed on Linux, we have the following driver available for connection to MSSQL Server: PDO DBLIB . If you are using your own pre-configured environment, MSSQL Server extensions must be enabled manually in PHP.

Si necesita utilizar Identificadores de la base de datos en tablas, le recomendamos que utilice las comillas dobles( ) en lugar de los corchetes( [ ] ) debido al conflicto con la sintaxis de variables globales de Scriptcase. Usar los corchetes como identificadores de bases de datos puede provocar problemas en las aplicaciones de Scriptcase.

Configuring and enabling the DBLIB PDO on macOS

IMPORTANT: If you are using Scriptcase’s automatic installer, the extensions are already enabled in PHP, ready for connection. The procedure below is only for manual installations of Scriptcase .

If you have installed PHP 7.3 through our documentation using homebrew, PDO DBLIB is already enabled in PHP, requiring only the connection. Check below our documentation for installing PHP 7.3 with homebrew on macOS.
