[1.1.6] Installation (Windows IIS / SQL Server)

Post by binolino » Dec 11, 2008 1:01 pm


usually we use asp-software and our IIS-Server (6.0) is fine for that. As a Database we use MS SQL Server 2005.

Today I installed php 5.2.8 on our IIS and tested the installation with phpinfo(); -> it works fine.

Then I wanted to install Mantis (V1.1.6).

http://serveradress/mantis/ -> return
I selected the type of database : "Microsoft SQL Server (experimental)" and filled in all the other fields.

After clicking on install the following error appears:
Checking PHP support for database type BAD
database is not supported by PHP. Check that it has been compiled into your server.
I checked google and noticed that I have to install some kind of driver for MS SQL. But I don't really know which one I have to use for Mantis! ODBC? The driver of Microsoft?
Searching in some forums is so annoying cause every forum-search-box filters "sql" and "ms" *doh*

I'm aktually a little lost. Perhaps you can help me?

Thanks a Lot ! Binolino

Please post what you set as parameters in your config_inc.php file, most likely the problem is there.
