WordPress on SQLServer and II6 (8 posts)

    I am running IIS6 on Windows Server 2003 and SQL Server 2005. I have PHP 5.2.6 running with the SQLSRV 1.0 driver for PHP. My SQLServer database is on another machine than my web site. I continue to get the error message of “Error establishing a database connection”. The database is running, and the password is correct. I have successfully connected to the database using ODBC connections.

    What else do I need to check/do?

  4. That would be an unsupported install BUT I noticed those directions say you need IIS7 and you've tagged this post as IIS6.

    I have been looking through those links but had not found anything that would solve my problem. I was hoping someone on this blog maybe had some experience with IIS6 and SQLServer 2005.

  8. Alas, we're mostly *nix/Apache and MySQL. I tagged this generic IIS and hopefully someone who's clever that way will see this :(
