But the only way to make the most of your server management is to perform it correctly. And to help you do so, this article will share nine tips on improving your server management and fix some problem about linux, php, sles, novell, sybase.

Am migrating an existing Ubuntu8.04 server running PHP4 and the sybase_ct driver to SuSe 10.2

The trouble is the sybase_ct driver that I need to connect to our MSSQL2000 / 2005 database.

On the Ubuntu install I found a package on etch main

which installed PHP4 and the sybase_ct driver.

However on the new SuSe install I’m having to compile PHP4 from source (all good), however the install of Sybase ASE is looking tricky, and unnecessary??

Is there an easy way to install PHP4 on SuSe… or an easy to get sybase_ct??

Many thanks

AutoBuild service is at:

Doing a quick search on sybase_ct did not return anything, but sybase returns 15 hits, mostly mono related. But I am not sure what exactly you are looking for.

Take a look, it can be quite helpful.
