    Make sure you have the correct version of ionCube loader selected (thread safe / non-thread safe). Comment out the zend_extension from php.ini and use the ionCube loader install Wizard.

    What is th error you are getting from myDBR? As for PHP 7, make sure you are using the PHP 7 compatible version of myDBR.

    ionCube Loader Wizard
    Loader Installed

    The ionCube Loader version 6.0.5 for PHP 7.0 is already installed and encoded files should run without problems.

    The Loader wizard is showing OK
    But still Mydbr is not recognizing
    Do we have to checkl specific extension for this to work ?

    Before running the Loader Wizard, comment out the current one and restart your web server. This will allow the Loader Wizard to recommend the correct loader version for you.

    When loader is not recognized, no myDBR code is run, so most likely you just have incorrect version of the loader installed (thread safe vs non-thread safe).

    You are using the Thread Safe version of the ionCube loader (, just check that the loader page in myDBR shows excactly this instead of the more common non-thread safe in Linux (

    The problem is I have compiled php 7 with following flag


    there is no mssql flag which was earlier in php 5

    Help of ioncube means using ionCube loader install Wizard.

    So you got the myDBR working in the server? The problem was not in the ionCube loader?

    The mssql-extension was dropped from PHP 7 core.

    Microsoft is working on the sqlsrv driver for Linux with Early Technical Preview available for selected Linux distributions in GitHub.

    The thread safety detection issue in loader error page has been corrected in the latest build.

    Can you please suggest how can I work with freeTDS with MyDBR
    I was able to work in PHP-5.6
    I am able to work with Zend_db as I was working earlier with PHP 5

  13. myDBR Team, Key Master

    MS SQL Server with FreeTDS is supported by PHP up to PHP 5.6. As said, PHP developers decided to drop the support for mssql extension (=including FreeTDS) from PHP core.

    The future (PHP>=7.0) with MS SQL Server with PHP is with sqlsrv-driver. myDBR does support the sqlsrv-driver.

    Do you have any link how to compile sqlsrv and pdo-sqlsrv with php 7

    My all applications based on Zend_db are working very fine with my source compilation of freetds
    Then where is withdrawal of support ?
    I am working with Zend_db with following connection string ;

    $mssqlconfig = new Zend_Config(
    'database' => array(
    'adapter' => 'PDO_MSSQL',
    'params' => array(
    'pdoType' => 'dblib',
    'host' => 'MIRRORSERVER' ,
    'dbname' => 'LIMS_LIVE' ,
    'username' => 'XXXXXX',
    'password' => 'XXXXXXXXXXXX',

    $zmssqldb = Zend_Db::factory($mssqlconfig->database);

    Can pdo_dblib based connection which is same as mssql be allowed by MyDBR ?

    Then where is withdrawal of support ?

    Can you rephrase the question?

    The precompiled sqlsrv drivers can be found at the GitHub link provided above (cannot provide support for your own application). Please note that the drivers are still considered as Early Technical Preview.

    I was able to configure MyDBR with sqlsrv on PHP 7 on RHEL 7.2
