    Need Help FAST....Web server..


    I am new to the all versions of the linux OS world. I am running Red Hat 9 and i am working on a class project.

    My objectives are to create a web server

    - Modify it to access an Microsoft SQL server
    and use a scripting language to query the SQL server

    so far i have apache up and running but i have no clue how to get this server to communicate with the microsoft sql server. i know it has soemthing to do with free TDS but i am a complete newbie. i don't know how to install anything. i also need to know how to access computers on the domain i am on. what confiurgation settings must be set for this to work? and what must i do to get on the domain?

    If anyone can help me out with anything it would be a huge help..i am on week6 of a 7 week project and i'm startin to sweat..

    With Apache and communication with MS-SQL, you should really have a look into PHP, where there are several of examples how to interact Apache and MS-SQL server.

    As for communication between you Linux and WIndows servers, check out the Samba server/client

    is part of the requirment that is be a MICROSOFT sql server, if not i would use mysql, buch easier to access from php, which would be your best bet when trying to access any database on linux.

    The MS-SQL server is already set-up. I need to communicate with it using redhat9...my instructor says i must use a scripting language to query the SQL server. I am in the dark on this one. if anyone had any step by step processes that i can look at it would be a great help. I only have one more 5 hour class to complete it and if i don't i'm in trouble.

    Well, as I stated earlier, you should have a look at PHP which is a scriptin language for Apache server. And it do support Microsoft SQL server as well. Just do some research on that site, and you'll pass your exam.

    can anyone find a "user-friendly" version of configuring FreeTDS because i usually use windows and none of the help files out there have been easy enough for me to understand.
