Unable to load dynamic library php_ibm_db2.dll

14 New Member

Setup: PHP5.2.5, IIS 5.1, XP, AS/400 (DB/400 or DB2)

I am trying to connect to a DB2 database from my computer. I installed DB2 Connect and set up the ODBC Driver in the Data Source Administrator. I uncommented the extension=php_i bm_db2.dll line in my php.ini file.

$DBName = "WSC520"; // The name of the database

include('adodb/adodb.inc.php') ;
$db = ADONewConnectio n('db2');
$db->curMode = SQL_CUR_USE_ODB C;
//$dns = "Driver={IB M DB2 ODBC DRIVER};Databas e=".$DBName.";H ostname=".$Host .";Port=446;Pro tocol=TCPIP;".
$dns = "Driver={iSerie s Access ODBC Driver};Databas e=".$DBName.";H ostname=".$Host .";Port=446;Pro tocol=TCPIP;".
"Uid=".$User."; Pwd=".$Password ;

// if ($db->Connect($Hos t, $User, $Password)) {
if ($db->Connect($dns , $User, $Password, $DBName)) {
// if ($db->Connect($dns )) {
echo "It worked";
} else {
echo "didn't work";

I continue to get the following error no matter what I do:

  1. PHP Warning:  PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library 'C:\php-5.2.5\ext\php_ibm_db2.dll' - The specified module could not be found.
  2.  in Unknown on line 0
I think this is causing my other error:

Yes the file is there. I even downloaded it again from the php snapshot for the pecl for 5.2. That didn't help. So I am thinking the file is not corrupted. I can still execute php scripts with this error. I just cannot connect to the DB2. I don't know what else to try...

It looks like the instalation of IBM DB2 Universal Database client didn't go well.
I can only suggest a bit more research on the subject, and attempt a re-install, sorry.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
