To enable ODBC support in PHP on Linux, configure --with-iodbc per the HOWTO
This will link PHP against an ODBC Driver Manager, but you will still
require an ODBC Driver.
If you cannot obtain an ODBC driver for FMPro for Linux, you can use the
OpenLink Multi-Tier ODBC Driver and "piggyback" it on the FMPro DSN on the
1. create a DSN on the FMPro server (I assume either Windows or Mac OS X?)
that we'll call "foo" for this example.
2. install the OpenLink Multi-Tier driver with Linux as your client, and
FMPro box as server. Ensure that you install the ODBC agent on your server
platform (this is a non-database specific "database agent").
3. create a DSN on your Linux box, specifying ServerType = ODBC, Hostname =
[FMPro server IP address], Database = foo
All other parameters should be self-explanatory.
Note - you may also use the above method to piggyback a Linux ODBC DSN onto
a local or remote JDBC Driver instead of an ODBC driver; let me know if you
