What is it?
To make it a convenient language in which to develop dynamic web pages, PHP provides the ability to retrieve information from many popular databases, such as SQL Anywhere. Included with SQL Anywhere are modules that provide access to SQL Anywhere databases from PHP. You can use these modules and the PHP language to write stand-alone scripts and create dynamic web pages that rely on information stored in SQL Anywhere databases.
Prebuilt versions of the PHP modules are provided for Windows, and Linux and are installed in the operating-system-specific subdirectories of your SQL Anywhere installation. Binaries can also be downloaded below. Your SQL Anywhere PHP Module must match your version of PHP. We will add pre-build binaries for new versions of PHP, but you can build your own if we do not get them built quickly enough for you.
The PHP modules require SQL Anywhere 10.0.1.3767 or greater.*
Pre-Built Driver Binaries
Download the most recent PHP drivers below by selecting the appropriate platform and version of PHP. On Linux, SQL Anywhere has both 64-bit and 32-bit versions of the modules for PHP version 5. It also has both threaded and non-threaded modules. If you are using the CGI version of PHP or if you are using Apache 1.x, use the non-threaded module. If you are using Apache 2.x, use the threaded module. Also, if you are using using the PHP external environment support, you must use the threaded modules. For Linux, the threaded version of the PHP modules have '_r' appended to the file name. Windows versions are implemented as Dynamic Link Libraries and Linux versions are implemented as Shared Objects.
