I've uncommented the line in php.ini to load the MSSQL functions and they show up on a phpinfo() page, so that part is good.
When I installed MSDE I tried it without a named instance first and just set an SA password.
Neither of these worked: mssql_connect('localhost','sa','password') mssql_connect('coconut','sa','password')
where "coconut" is the name of my computer.
Then I tried installing MSDE again with a named instance and tried
and those wouldn't work either. The only response I get is "failed to connect to server ..."
I'm off to try ODBC. Anyone have any suggestions?
