I have a PHP script that I run locally (on my Windows XP Machine) that accesses a MSSQL server using the mssql_connect() function. I used xampp to get PHP on my machine.

The error I was getting was:
mssql_connect(): unable to connect to server: ‘www.ashtonsanders.com’
(Domain changed for security purposes.)
I handled it by replacing ntwdblib.dll with this ntwdblib.dll.zip in these two folders:
(Note: algorytmy.pl was the final website that helped me handle my problem.)
