Installing php5-mssql in Ubuntu

Q. How do I install support for mssql in php on Ubuntu?

A. The answer is not as intuitive as apt-get install php5-mysql, but pretty close:

This command will install generic support for MSSQL (based on sybase):

aptitude install php5-sybase

Some of the mssql functions are missing in the above package, so you'd need to run this:

pear install --nodeps MDB2_Driver_mssql

Tested on Ubuntu 8.04 and 10.04 LTS.

I've noticed that there is php5-mssql available in 10.04+, I haven't tried it, but the above steps can probably be replaced with that package.
