Thanks for the info, Chris! I could swear that I heard from Zend last year at COMMON that Zend Server 9.x couldn't be put on IBMi 7.1. That's great news!

I'll give this a shot on our development box. Thanks again for the reply.

Just for reference, Zend Server 9.x and PHP 7.x does not require IBMi 7.3.

We are running it on 7.1.

It appears that Zend has included pdo_dblib, you just need to enable it in the server setup.

From the Zend Server "PHP" "Extensions" page.
FreeTDS PHP-MSSQL-Sybase DB Access

PDO_DBLIB is a driver that implements the PHP Data Objects (PDO) interface to enable access from PHP to Microsoft SQL Server and Sybase databases through the FreeTDS libary.
