I got this error :

CakePHP is NOT able to connect to the database.

Database connection "Sqlserver" is missing, or could not be created.

Details :

  • CakePHP 2.5.4
  • Wamp server 32-bit
  • Dreamweaver CS6
  • SQL Server 2014

On my details.php


public $default = array(
    'datasource' => 'Database/Sqlserver',
    'persistent' => false,
    'host' => 'localhost\MSSQLSERVER',
    'database' => 'testing'

I have load both the extension on both ext folder (apache & php) and on php.ini


Searched everywhere but still cannot connect to sqlserver.

note : I can connect to MySQL but not SQLServer

    In the end, i've found the solution. It's the problem of WAMPP server. Tho i have it installed on other machine and it works, it's not the same with the machine i'm currently using. So what i do is:

    1. Uninstall WAMPP
    2. Install XAMPP
    3. Configure php.ini on apache and php
    4. Load extensions in the ext folder of php

    Note : I did the same configuration with WAMPP earlier

    Then everything works like a charm.

    Try to edit another php.ini in C:\wamp\bin\apache\Apache2.x.x\bin\ then restart apache. Also the SQL Server Native Client must be installed for the extension to work.

    Maybe bacause you're not running sqlserver? Wamp is configured with apache/MySQL... hence the WAMP acronym...

    In which case your config file should be similar to the one given in this example...
