Thank you very much bro. I have tested and can confirm that the Thread Safe versions work on PHP 5.5 on a x64 machine. My configuration is a WAMP and WASP stack with
MS SQL 2008R2 (Express)
php_sqlsrv_55_ts.dll loaded as dynamic extensions.
I haven't run performance tests yet, but I'm seeing a marked improvement in server performance for complex queries coded for earlier sqlsrv (again unofficial :-) drivers. I upgraded to PHP 5.5.1 yesterday thinking I'll compile the driver source and swallow
the downtime. Boy! You saved me all that work.
And, this is precisely why I love open source. Regular Joes like me get assistance from awesome folks like yourself and if someday we get the chance; to pay it forward.
Once again, Thank you so much.
Life's complex, but the simple things are what matter most. I wish all of you the scent of a new idea and the liberty to pursue it.
