They are not compiled into the binary, but are available as an extension that you enable via php.ini <snip> > Any ideas what the right best way to do this is?

Try moving php_mssql.dll back into your extension directory, ensure that the 'extension_dir' value is correct, restart apache and test again. -- PHP Database Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
