CXI. Ovrimos SQL Functions


Ovrimos SQL Server, is a client/server, transactional RDBMS combined with Web capabilities and fast transactions.

Note: This extension has been moved to the PECL repository and is no longer bundled with PHP as of PHP 5.1.0.

Note: This extension is not available on Windows platforms.


You'll need to install the sqlcli library available in the Ovrimos SQL Server distribution.


To enable Ovrimos support in PHP just compile PHP with the --with-ovrimos[=DIR] parameter to your configure line. DIR is the Ovrimos' libsqlcli install directory.

Runtime Configuration

This extension has no configuration directives defined in php.ini.


Example 1. Connect to Ovrimos SQL Server and select from a system table

$conn = ovrimos_connect("server.domain.com", "8001", "admin", "password");
if ($conn != 0) {
    echo "Connection ok!";
    $res = ovrimos_exec($conn, "select table_id, table_name from sys.tables");
    if ($res != 0) {
        echo "Statement ok!";
This will just connect to an Ovrimos SQL server.
