Please have a look at the manual pages (if you have not allready done that). There might be some information for you in the user comments:


Manual page about command line scripting:


Now you're using windows so I don't think that FreeTDS is used, right? But if you were on a Linux environment you should note that you need to have the server configured in the config file for FreeTDS, exactly in the same way your connecting. That means if you use fully qualified domain names the server should be registered with the same hostname in freetds.conf. But that has probably nothing to do with this now since you're using Windows...

The documentation of mssql_connect() says that you can specify a portnumber like you did, but I found some examples on the net using a colon (:) instead. Try that also, or try with the default port number... I'm not sure if that is gonna help you at all, but it's worth trying...

Or maybe you have some problem with name resolution through DNS... Try using the IP adress when connecting... It's really hard to tell what's wrong. However, I have seldom used PHP in a Windows environment so maybe I'm the wrong person to answer your questions! :) I do however have a command line application running on Windows XP that successfully uses MySQL on a Linux server, never had any trouble with that...

thanks for your quick answer,

but in the script I don't use sessions variables to store host, user and
password, I wrote something like that:

Can you please tell me where I can find information about how to design
scripts for either the environment?

Thanks a lot.

That description did not help us very much... I think you're just
connecting using the wrong credentials, or using no at all. From where do
you grab the hostname, username and password? Maybe it's stored in your
session or something, and that session is not working in your command line
environment..? It could be just about anything that's your problem! :)

My advice is to take a look att the parameters using to connect to the
server, maybe echo them to stdout before doing your connect... It might be
that they are not defined when running your script on command-line.

In general, very few script are written in such a way that they work the
same way in a webserver environment and on command line. You should design
your scripts for either the environment.

I have a problem with all my php scripts that use MS SQL Server, but
when I start them from the command line
I'm using Apache 2.2.4 with PHP 5.2.5 on a server Win2k3 with SP2, and
SQL Server 2000 on another Win2k3 server.
If I run the same script using a webbrower as an internet page it works
but if I run it from the command line (c:\>php scipt.php) I will receive
messages like this:
"Warning: mssql_connect(): Unable to connect to server: servername,1433
c:\script.php on line #"
Can someone have an idea what could be the problem?
Can someone please help me?
What should I do to make it working?
Tanks a lot in advance.
