Recently, I have read an article in SQL Azure series. It is very useful for the PHP developers to build an application with SQL Azure power. I am very must interested in writing code. I have been a programmer for quite long time. I started my binary life with Basic, COBOL, ASM, C, C++, VB, .NET, web programming, etc. So, as a programmer this article inspired me to share with other programmers thru this blog.
In this article, I will talk about the methods and the drivers used to connect Microsoft SQL Azure database with PHP.
Any application that connects to database requires drivers in the same way we need PHP drivers that are mandatory to connect to SQL Azure.
You can download the SQL Server Driver for PHP from the Microsoft website.
Now, creating an application within a “Windows Azure Web CGI Role” and adding a piece of predefined code in web.config and web.roleconfig file.
I just shared the overview about PHP application connection to SQL Azure. Please read this Microsoft MSDN article for full information.
