We are looking to upgrade on our test server but a Moodle error message states that there is a database driver error for Microsoft drivers. We've recently upgraded PHP to v.5.6.36 and Moodle, in its current state is in v.3.0.9, to be upgraded to a modern release. Our php.ini has the drivers properly enabled, the drivers are listed in the php/ext folder, and IIS and MS SQL settings appear to be operating as expected. Are these drivers (such as php_sqlsrv_56_nts.dll) no longer compatible with this version of PHP?
I've looked across the forums but could not find anything applicable to what I'm going through and would like to remedy this driver error before proceeding. Any help is appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
