Open your terminal and enter the following commands to install brew, Microsoft ODBC Driver for Mac and the Microsoft PHP Drivers for SQL Server.ruby -e "$(curl -fs SL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)" brew tap microsoft/msodbcsql https://github.com/Microsoft/homebrew-msodbcsql-preview brew update brew install msodbcsql #for silent install ACCEPT_EULA=y brew install msodbcsql pecl install sqlsrv-4.1.7preview pecl install pdo_sqlsrv-4.1.7preview /etc/apt/d/exit sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install msodbcsql mssql-tools unixodbc-dev gcc g php-dev sudo pecl install sqlsrv pdo_sqlsrv sudo echo "extension= pdo_sqlsrv.so" At this point, you should have the dlls registered with PHP.Fortunately, this isn’t the case with Code Igniter ( a compact and powerful PHP framework developed in PHP 4 that permits you to create full-featured web applications very quickly.
When you are done, your page will look something like the following: The walkthrough will illustrate a number of concepts: To access the data, you will need a connection to the database you want to read from. However, because the Update statement does not return any records, the code for executing the statement is relatively simple.
You will also need several command objects — two to read data from the database using SQL Select statements, and a third to update the database with a SQL Update statement. Security Note User input in a Web Forms page can include potentially malicious client script.
In the catch block above we echo the SQL statement and the generated error message.
You’ve seen some of the things you can accomplish with the Code Igniter PHP framework in earlier parts of this series.
Because a majority of Web applications involve reading data and not updating it, one-way data binding keeps the size and complexity of the page architecture to a minimum for the most common scenarios.
