PHP Manual || PDO Drivers

PDO_ODBC is a driver that implements the PHP Data Objects (PDO) interface to enable access from PHP to databases through ODBC drivers or through the IBM DB2 Call Level Interface (DB2 CLI) library. PDO_ODBC currently supports three different "flavours" of database drivers:

ibm-db2

Supports access to IBM DB2 Universal Database, Cloudscape, and Apache Derby servers through the free DB2 express-C client.

unixODBC

Supports access to database servers through the unixODBC driver manager and the database's own ODBC drivers.

generic

Offers a compile option for ODBC driver managers that are not explicitly supported by PDO_ODBC.

On Windows, php_pdo_odbc.dll has to be enabled as extension in php.ini. It is linked against the Windows ODBC Driver Manager so that PHP can connect to any database cataloged as a System DSN, and is the recommended driver for connecting to Microsoft SQL Server databases.

PDO_ODBC on UNIX systems
  1. As of PHP 5.1, PDO_ODBC is included in the PHP source. You can compile the PDO_ODBC extension as either a static or shared module using the following configure commands.

    ibm_db2

    ./configure --with-pdo-odbc=ibm-db2,/opt/IBM/db2/V8.1/
