Hello everyone,

I am having some issues getting mssql (not MySql) working on my cPanel server.

I have installed everything needed through using yum on through ssh on the server rebuilt the apache to include odbc and even did a phpinfo and odbc was showing up and working, about a week later something happened cPanel updated the apache build through some update overwrote what I did and removed odbc??? I cant find anywhere to add odbc in the apache build (apache update) to add it so that when cPanel updates it adds odbc to it?

does anyone have any idea as to what I am missing (Very new to cPanel)

Thanks

Adam:cool:

Hello,

Thankyou for the reply.

Yes I do mean the integration of MSSQL into php, but as I had noted I have succesfully done so with the apached build as phpinfo showed it but cPanel for somereason or another did some update to the apache build and removed --unixODBC from the configuration I could manually re add it again but I would have to do so every week or so I would have to redo it or create a cron job to do it or something. What I am wondering is there anything I can do inside cPanel too add sometype of odbc connection to the apache php build.

Thanks again.

cPanel will only remove your custom config options for Apache / PHP if you run easyapache. You don't need to run this every week.

We haven't ran this for a long time and always manually configure PHP for updates.

I'm just curious from a users perspective if anyone has tried using these instructions (cPanel 11) for adding in custom configuration options for Apache/PHP so they wont be overwritten when EA is run again and any successes/failures you guys have had with this.

Hello All,


I was wondering you had said

Is it always a manual thing to run easyapache or can it be possible that its doing it on its own? somewhere? if so where do I look?
