Adding mssql support in php 5.3


I have an old project that I need to setup locally that runs on php 5.3 and uses the mssql extension to talk to SQL Server.

Can someone point me in the right direction to get the mssql extension installed in the php 5.3 container?


I am currently also out of luck.

If someone provides a snippet for Debian based systems to get this installed for PHP 5.3 I can ship it by default inside the 5.3 Docker image.


@cytopia is there a way to reload php-fpm without restarting devilbox?

I’ve just made all my changes directly inside the php container for now and have the module built and ready to test. I added a file at /usr/local/etc/php/conf.d/docker-php-ext-mssql.ini following the structure of the other extensions, but can’t figure out how to make it reload the php.ini (without restarting the whole stack and losing my changes).
