2012 SQL Server Express troubles

Just getting started with DreamFactory…
I just want to be able to call stored procedures from my ios app.

I am trying to use the 2.0 beta. I follow the various steps to add the drivers to the ext folder and update PHP.ini. I have the native client installed. When I go to add the service that points to my SQL Server Express I get a pop up error “Required extension or module ‘mssql’ is not installed or loaded.” I am following the steps I read here : https://github.com/dreamfactorysoftware/dsp-core/wiki/SQL-Database-Services#sqlsrv,

I also tried version 1.9.4, was able to set up the connection and see my schema/data, but no “resources” were listed under my SQL Database in API section.

I’m indifferent to which version I should use. I just want to get up and running quickly.

I just downloaded the product on to my Desktop and having similar issues. I tested with Telnet and the local ms sql server can be connected. I have also done the copy of 2 dll into my ext folder under PHP. Nothing seems to work. There’s got to be a easier way to get these simple problems resolved. I understand this is open source? Any help is appreciated. I also using the 2.0 beta for DreamFactory. I hope to hear from someone soon.

Known bug in 2.0 beta, fixed in dev branch. Also reported here.

You may find some issues following 1.x documentation when working on the 2.0 beta.

What have you named your service?

I’m sorry you’ve found it difficult to get us to help with your problem. The bug you ran into is already fixed in the dev branch of the beta.
