Accessing SQL Databases with PHP

Posted on February 18, 2009

Modifying pre-existing WordPress themes… That’s my extent of PHP programming. I got to thinking that it would be cool to turn my weather site into a regular WordPress blog and somehow incorporate the data that I currently have into some sort of theme. All of my historical data is stored in a SQL Server database, while forecast and current conditions data is stored in XML.

I did some searching on PHP with SQL Server and came across the blog for the Microsoft SQL Server Driver for PHP Team. Who knew such a team existed? From there I found a link to an article on MSDN, “Accessing SQL Server Databases with PHP“. Exactly what I was looking for.

So, in the coming days I plan to explore PHP territory. I’ve used .NET for all of my web programming. We’ll see what kind of learning curve I run into.

What is your favorite language for the web?
