Subject [users@httpd] Informix webdtablade and php functions
Date Thu, 12 Jan 2006 14:04:58 GMT

I've installed a SUN server under Solaris 9 with Apache 2.0.55, PHP 
5.1.1, Informix 9.40.UC6, Informix Client SDK 2.90.UC3, Informix 
Webdatablade 4.13.UC3. Now I try to get information from the Informix 
database via a PHP ifx_connect function and on the same apache server 
using the Informix webdatablade tool (old pages not yet migrated ...).

The php and informix modules are loaded in the apache httpd.conf :

#IBM Informix Web DataBlade DSO Module Added
LoadModule        informix_module       

# Load the necessary PHP modules
LoadModule php5_module        modules/

I'm not able to have php and webdatablade connections to informix work 
together ...

Case 1:

If I load the informix module first in the httpd.conf file the php ifx 
functions doesn't work and I get the following incomplete error message :

*Warning*: ifx_connect() [function.ifx-connect 
<>]: E [SQLSTATE= in 
*/d3/apache2/wwwdbdev/php-dhz/testifmx.php* on line *3*

*Warning*: ifx_query(): supplied argument is not a valid Informix link 
resource in */d3/apache2/wwwdbdev/php-dhz/testifmx.php* on line *4*

*Warning*: printf() [function.printf 
<>]: Too few arguments in 
*/d3/apache2/wwwdbdev/php-dhz/testifmx.php* on line *7*

The php script is below :


$ConnId = ifx_connect ("aaaa@bbbbb","xxxxxx","xxxxxx");
$ResId = ifx_query ("SELECT * FROM dhtable", $ConnId);

if (! $ResId) {
    printf("Can't select names : %s\n<br />%s<br />\n", ifx_error());
ifx_htmltbl_result($ResId, "border=\"1\"");


On the other hand the webdatablade connection works normally ...

Case 2:

If I load the php module before the informix module in the httpd.conf 
file, the php ifx_connect function works correctly, but now the 
wedatablade connection fails (never answer) ....

I need the two ways to connect to the database, since we actually still 
use both .... I've asked IBM for a solution, but they propose me to 
submit this problem to PHP people since IBM didn't develop the ifx 
functions to connect to the informix database via PHP.

Any help would be appreciated !

Best regards
