Hello,

I'm trying to install dblib_pdo on my server but on the last step I always get an error.

PHP version: 5.4
Apache 2.4
CentOS 6.6 64-bit


Here are the steps I performed:

- First I installed FreeTDS using the following:
Code:
wget http://ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/ALPHA/freetds/stable/freetds-stable.tgz
tar zfvx freetds-stable.tgz
cd freetds-*; ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/freetds --with-tdsver=8.0 --enable-msdblib --with-gnu-ld; make ; make install
I then created a symlink using the following:
Code:
ln -s /usr/local/freetds/lib/libsybdb.so.5 /usr/lib64/libsybdb.so.5
Then,
Code:
touch /usr/local/freetds/lib/libtds.a
touch /usr/local/freetds/include/tds.h
Then rebuilt Apache.

========

Second installing dblib_pdo:
Code:
wget http://pecl.php.net/get/PDO_DBLIB-1.0.tgz
tar -zxvf PDO_DBLIB-1.0.tgz
cd PDO_DBLIB-1.0
phpize
./configure --with-pdo-dblib=/usr/local/freetds
Until here, everything looks fine and no errors.
However, when I lastly run the following command, it outputs error:

Code:
make ; make install
======

The error:
Code:
/root/PDO_DBLIB-1.0/pdo_dblib.c:37: error: expected ‘=’, ‘,’, ‘;’, ‘asm’ or ‘__a                                          ttribute__’ before ‘pdo_dblib_functions’
/root/PDO_DBLIB-1.0/pdo_dblib.c:62: error: ‘pdo_dblib_functions’ undeclared here                                           (not in a function)

make: *** [pdo_dblib.lo] Error 1
======

I'd really appreciate it if anyone can tell how to solve this issue or review commands I used and see if there is anything wrong, or anything that should be added in order to install the dblib_pdo correctly.

Any answer would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance :)

Hello :)

Could you confirm if you are experiencing the exact same error message, or just general trouble installing the module?

Thank you.

Hello,
I have the same problem on Centos 7, PHP v5.6

PDO_DBLIB-1.0/pdo_dblib.c:37:1: error: unknown type name 'function_entry' function_entry pdo_dblib_functions[] .... etc

Can you please help?

I've found the solution:

I had to manually edit the pdo_dblib.c file and change function from:

function_entry pdo_dblib_functions[] = {
{NULL, NULL, NULL}
};


to

zend_function_entry pdo_dblib_functions[] = {
{NULL, NULL, NULL}
};


I don't know why this isn't fix by now.

Hello,

I'm happy to see you were able to address the issue. Thank you for updating this thread with the solution. Note it looks like an older PECL module with no recent updates:

PECL :: Package :: PDO_DBLIB

Thank you.
