SQL Connection Bitami 2.0.1


Just stood up a new bitnami server with 2.0.1 installed. I currently have two VMs. One with 2.0.0 and one with 2.0.1. The 2.0.0 version is able to connect to a remote sql server database. The 2.0.1 version is not. The only difference I can see is that in the configuration of the service for 2.0.0 there is a driver selection for MS SQL Server/Sybase (which is what works). In 2.0.1, there is only a selection that says “SQL Server”. Do I need to install another driver on 2.0.1 to get SQL to work?



Are you using the dblib driver to connect to SQL Server from Linux/Mac or the sqlsrv driver to connect to SQL Server from Windows?


Trying to connect to a windows box running sql from bitnami on ubuntu. The same connection string works on my 2.0.0 VM. This is the error I’m seeing in the bitnami log.

H01071: Got error ‘PHP message: REST Exception #500 > Failed to connect to database.\nConnection failed to open the DB connection: SQLSTATE[01002] Adaptive Server connection failed (severity 9)\n’, referer:


I also tried connecting to sql server from DF2.0.1 on windows box but getting error Required extension or module 'sqlsrv' is not installed or loaded


@Im_PJ that’s actually a different issue than the one originally reported in this thread. You need to install the Micosoft sqlsrv php drivers. Details on that are here: https://github.com/dreamfactorysoftware/dsp-core/wiki/SQL-Database-Services#sqlsrv


@cmthomps can you share the contents of your freetds.conf file?


Here is the contents of my freetds.conf file:

#   $Id: freetds.conf,v 1.12 2007/12/25 06:02:36 jklowden Exp $
# This file is installed by FreeTDS if no file by the same 
# name is found in the installation directory.

# Global settings are overridden by those in a database

	# Whether to write a TDSDUMP file for diagnostic purposes

;	dump file = /tmp/freetds.log
;	debug flags = 0xffff

	# Command and connection timeouts
;	timeout = 10

;	connect timeout = 10
	# If you get out-of-memory errors, it may mean that your client
	# is trying to allocate a huge buffer for a TEXT field.  
	# Try setting 'text size' to a more reasonable limit 
	#text size = 20971520

# A typical Sybase server
	host = symachine.domain.com
	port = 5000
	tds version = 5.0

# A typical Microsoft server
	host = ntmachine.domain.com
	port = 1433
	tds version = 7.0


So I just retested. I’m able to connect to my SQL box now. I’m not entirely sure what changed. Sorry if I created a fire drill.


No worries on our end. Glad it’s working for you!
