Moodle 2.6.2 & MSSQL2008
 

Hi,

I currently have moodle installed on a Windows 2003 server and a MSSQL 2005 database and I am planning to upgrade moodle to version 2.6.2 and also upgrading to MSSQL 2008 . I have had a search through the forums but I cannot seem to find confirmation that Moodle 2.6.2 is compatible with MSSQL 2008. I can see some users have got it to run with this version but does anyone have any information on if there are any know issues with this or if it has been tested with this?

 

Thanks in advance.

If you use MSSQL 2008 R2 then you should be ok. I've successfully managed to upgrade a Moodle 2.0 site on MSSQL 2005 to Moodle 2.6 on MSSQL 2008 R2.

What driver are you using to connect PHP to MSSQL? FreeTDS or the Microsoft SQL Server Driver for PHP?

So, to be safe first try upgrading a COPY of your production site to 2008 R2. Then test the upgraded site for a while. If everything is ok then upgrade the production site.

Luis, what version of PHP did you install for the Moodle 2.6.2?
