PHP and informix

P: n/a
Hi all,

I'm discovering what we can do with PHP and our database INFORMIX IDS 9.4.
I saw that ifx_connect existes, but when I put that in my test.php file, the
system
does not know that function.
I found that a PHP informix driver must be made, but I really don't see what
to do.
Has anybody an example of hit which I can use as exemple?
I found a file php.ini, but what do I need to give?
Thanks,
Danny

A glance at the manual yields:
===========================================

To be able to use the functions defined in this module you must
compile your PHP interpreter using the configure line
--with_informix[=DIR], where DIR is the Informix base install
directory, defaults to nothing.

===========================================

Hitting google yields:

http://www.prstech.com/src/php/php_i...es_on_php.html

The directions look reasonable so long as nothing goes wrong.

If that fails, keep looking:

http://www.google.com/search?q=PHP+and+informix

Note the 'and' in the query affects the results.

enjoy,

Sean

When posting questions like this, you should also specify your OS,
PHP version, etc.

I don't know much about *nix flavours; but if I'm right you may need
to compile it manually. Isn't phpinfo() helpful for you?

Look at the first link I posted. It gives explicit instructions on
how to build it.
