I've downlownded and installed the Desktop Edition of MSSQL and am trying to connect to it with PHP. Has anyone ever accomplished this?

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:

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?
