Using PHP with SQL/R
--------------------

Revision: 2000-06-28


Prerequisites
-------------

1. You need to install an Apache web server which includes the
   PHP module and supports ODBC.

   A pre-compiled binary for the Linux and HP-UX platform is
   available for download at 
   ftp://ftp.marxmeier.com/sqlr/unsupported/apache/

2. You may need to install the iODBC driver manager.

   A pre-compiled binary for the Linux and HP-UX platform is
   available for download at 
   ftp://ftp.marxmeier.com/sqlr/unsupported/iodbc/

3. You need to install SQL/R A.02.21 or above.
   If this system is only acting as an ODBC client (server is
   running on a different system) you don't need a license key.

4. In order to use the example, you need to install the 
   HP Eloquence sample database which is available for download 
   at ftp://ftp.marxmeier.com/eloq/eloqcgi/


Installation
------------

1. Please unpack the php_sample.tar.gz archive in your htdocs
   directory. When unpacked this will create a php_sample directory.

     cd /var/opt/apache/htdocs/
     tar xzf /tmp/php_sample.tar.gz

2. You need to define your data source (virtual data base) in
   the SQL/R configuration file /etc/opt/sqlr2/odbc.dsn as usual.

   For the SAMPLE database which could be downloaded at
   ftp://ftp.msede.com/eloq/eloqcgi/ the following entry
   is sufficient (if the eloqdb6 server is running locally).
   
   --- odbc.dsn ---
   [SAMPLE]
   Database = sample
   --- odbc.dsn ---
   
3. Next you need to configure your ODBC client. Please edit the
   file /etc/opt/iodbc/odbc.ini (on HP-UX) and /etc/odbc.ini
   (on Linux) as specified in the installation instructions.

   If the SQL/R server is on the local machine, the following
   content should be sufficient:

   --- odbc.ini / Linux ---
   [Default]
   Driver = /opt/sqlr2/lib/libc6/libsqlrodbc.so
   --- odbc.ini ---

   --- odbc.ini / HP-UX ---
   [Default]
   Driver = /opt/sqlr2/lib/libsqlrodbc.sl
   --- odbc.ini ---

4. You may need to change your Apache configuration. Please check
   the configuration file /etc/opt/apache/httpd.conf.
   
   If you have a modular Apache web server, the following
   directive needs to be enabled:
   
   LoadModule php3_module        libexec/libphp3.so

   The following directive needs to be enabled to associate the
   .php3 files with the PHP module:

   AddType application/x-httpd-php3 .php3


Running the example
-------------------

Please open the /php_sample file in your browser.

- Please entry a customer number, such as 32001 in the first field.
  The Customer record should become visible after pressing submit.

- Please entry a matchcode, such as KE% in the second field.
  A list of matching customers should become visible after pressing 
  submit.

Please note: The PHP code is kept to some minimum.  It is meant as 
a simple/stupid example and thats it.
I certainly agree that it is long winded and ugly.


Enjoy!
