Ticket #22745 (closed enhancement: duplicate)
php5-odbc: iODBC support
|Reported by:||emgillis@…||Owned by:||ryandesign@…|
I did search the tickets database and various documentation sources, but could not find anything that matches my request. If I missed it somehow, I do apologize.
I know that php5-odbc is the currently supported module, however it does not seem to support "iODBC", but only "unixODBC". Since "iODBC" is what is installed on OS X by default, it would make sense to have the "iODBC" support. Also, because not all drivers are compatible with one project or the other. For instance, there does not appear to be a Sybase Driver compatible with unixODBC on the Mac OS X platform -- easySoft's seems to only support AIX, HP-UX, Linux, Solaris. But there is an iODBC Sybase Driver for OS X developed by ActualTechnologies.
In short, it would be nice to have a module something like:
Or perhaps be able to pass a flag or parameter like:
php5-odbc [+iodbc | +unixodbc]
I have only noticed the inability to use iODBC with the macports php5 build since the latest update to php 5.3. I have not tried the "devel" version because this option is needed on a production server that I'm doing setup for at the moment.
