Need Help Connecting to MSSQL

Hi.

I am experiencing problems connecting to MSSQL.
I'm not sure where to begin looking for the problem.
I don't know if the problem is originating with PHP or MSSQL

What should the host name be? When I mouse over MSSQL manager it says
"\\S-CIS-0042"

$db_host='local'; //IP/host of the database server
$db_login='sa'; //database login name
$db_password='******'; //database password
$db_name='Cheetah'; //database name on the server

$localhost

Hi,

$db_host='localhost'; If the database is on localy on "your" computer

or

$db_host='192.168.x.x'; (valid address) If the database is on a remote
computer
Greetings, Urs
