Hi LS Community experts.
I am installing LS 3.7.2, however am getting 'Connection with database failed' error at Step#4-Configuration.
I have installed the PHP ODBC Driver for SQL Server in C:\PHP7\ext\-Step #3 validated it. (c pics)

Is there any config changes I need to modify? Im stuck at this point. What am I missing?
Thanks
JK

My Environment:
LimeSurvey 3.7.2
Win Server 2012 r2(64bit)
Apache 2.4.33(64bit)
PHP 7.2.5(64bit)
MS SQL Server Drivers 5.2_ForPHP(64bit)
php_sqlsrv_72_ts_x64.dll
php_pdo_sqlsrv_72_ts_x64.dll

Please fix the following input errors:
Try again! Connection with database failed.
Reason: SQLSTATE[IMSSP]: This extension requires the Microsoft ODBC Driver for SQL Server to communicate with SQL Server. Access the following URL to download the ODBC Driver for SQL Server for x64: go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=163712

Hi,
Found & fixed the error. It wasn't ref to the SS driver for PHP, but rather the Microsoft ODBC Driver xx for SQL Server. D/loaded odbc & LS installation successful. Happy Tuesday everyone. JK
p.s. did not see an option to close this.
