      Description

      This issue will implement a secondary database driver for the SQL Server 2005 PHP driver written by Microsoft. This driver seeks to replace the outdated and buggy php_mssql module available in the php download. Currently only the May CTP is available, but a release is imminent.

      I've been contracted to create the driver for moodle and will take on development myself, providing regular updates and patches.
