php|architect: Got MSSQL? Check out our whitepaper!

The folks over at php|architect have created a white paper detailing some of their experiences with using the SQL Server Driver (v2.0) with PHP and made it available for download.

A while back, our friends at Microsoft asked us to write a whitepaper on how to use Microsoft SQL Server from PHP through their brand-new SQL Server Driver 2.0, which you may have noticed tucked away in a corner of the download package for our September 2010 issue. Now that we've had a chance to collect feedback and fix a few bugs here and there, we thought it'd be good to make it available to anyone - you can find it here in PDF format.

Topics covered in the paper include installing and configuring the SQL Server driver, accessing the database with PHP, understanding joins, working with SQL Azure and a bit on migrating from a MySQL database.
