    Unanswered: Accessing an ODBC datasource from PHP

    Hi,

    My problem is this...

    I'd like to access my Sage Line 50 data from PHP, running on FreeBSD. Sage provide an ODBC driver for Windows, but none for FreeBSD/Linux.

    So I guess what I'm asking is, what's the best way to access an ODBC datasource on a Windows machine from a UNIX machine? I've seen some of Easysoft's solutions, but my company just can't afford 400-500.

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Regards,

    Daniel Briley

    Try specifiying the server in the connection string in php. How are you connecting to the ODBC? Using one of the pear librarys?
