Unable to load MS SQL drivers for PHP in Laragon
I have a recent download of the full version of Laragon installed on my Windows 10 x64 PC, when I load the mssql drivers for php and try to use them I get: Warning: PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library 'php_sqlsrv_72_nts_x64'
I have version 5.6 of the SQL server drivers for PHP downloaded. I made sure I put the above sql server .dll file into the correct extension directory within PHP. I made sure within the php.ini file that the path to the extension directory is correct. I edited the php.ini file to include the above extension. I have the microsoft ODBC driver version 17 installed. I have restarted Laragon, restarted my computer, and still I get the error message above that it cannot load the dynamic library.
If anyone has any other insights that would help get this working, they would be greatly appreciated.
