PHP client deployment

To deploy the SQL Anywhere PHP extension, you must install the following components on the target platform:

  • The PHP 5 binaries for your platform, which are available for download at [external link] For Windows platforms, the thread-safe version of PHP must be used with the SQL Anywhere PHP extension.

  • A web server such as Apache HTTP Server to run PHP scripts within a web server.

    SQL Anywhere can be run on the same computer as the web server, or on a different computer.

  • SQL Anywhere provides prebuilt PHP extensions for many PHP versions ranging from 5.1.1 to 5.4.8.

  • Supporting SQL Anywhere shared objects or libraries.

The following table summarizes the files required for PHP clients.
