Building PHP on Windows

    By: Paul Vero on Feb 01, 2013

    In the ASE Software Developer Kit (SDK) 15.7 a PHP driver for ASE was included. During our testing of the driver, on Linux things went smoothly. You download the PHP source, build it to your specifications and everything runs smoothly. On Windows x64 it’s not so simple. Well, actually, it’s not that bad but for a guy who does lots a development on Windows in the Visual Studio IDE I had no clue how to build PHP from the source code. It seemed like the Linux way of building, using the GNU autoconfig process ran smoothly and once I got the hang of it, I could build all sorts of things. If only there was a way to do this on Windows using Visual Studio. There is, sort of. The PHP website doesn’t offer the Windows binaries. You download the source and build it yourself. Our PHP driver for ASE is built from Visual Studio 2005, so the PHP you use must also be built from msdev (my short lingo for Visual Studio) 2005.

    We’ll go over the steps to build PHP for use with the PHP driver for ASE on Windows x64. In my case I am using Windows 7 x64 and Visual Basic 2005. I’ll use the PHP Driver from my SDK 15.7 ESD#06 installation and run the firstapp.php to verify my working PHP installation.
