mod_php's ODBC connectivity is not ready for primetime yet.

mod_php currently supports mSQL 1.0.x, mSQL 2.0.x, Postgres95, PostgreSQL,
MySQL, FilePro, Illustra, Sybase, Oracle and Solid.  ODBC support is being
tested, but I am not really comfortable with it yet.  Why the heck are they
limiting the test to only MS SQL?  It would be nice if they would also 
compare how many of the other web servers can talk to all the various
free or nearly free databases out there.  A lot of people don't have $1200
to throw at MS SQL Server (myself included).

Doug, any ODBC Perl module that works with mod_perl that we can suggest?

If not, I will try to get the mod_php ODBC support up to speed.
