Connect PHP in Debian Jessie to Ms Sql Server using FreeTDS

In this post we will connect Php code in Linux env (Debian 8 Jessie) to M$ Sql Server, using FreeTDS (latest vers.).

We start from a fresh installation of Debian 8 Jessie.

# apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
# apt-get install apache2
# apt-get install php5
# /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
# apt-get install dpkg-dev
# apt-get install devscripts

To check that php5 works fine

# php -v
PHP 5.6.13-0+deb8u1 (cli) (built: Sep  7 2015 13:38:37)
