I will attempt this in the morning. Is it okay with you if I email you on
the iODBC stuff? PHP was compiled like so:
Configure command: ./configure '--with-apxs=/usr/local/apache/1.3/bin/apxs'
'--enable-track-vars' '--enable-trans-sid' '--enable-versioning'
'--with-ttf' '--with-ftp' '--with-gd=/usr/local' '--enable-memory-limit'
php3.ini file path is set to: /usr/local/lib
(iODBC resulted in syntax errors last time I tried. I am new to this I
should emphasize!) Also, any ODBC driver you would recommend?
