    PHP and PDO_DBLIB to access MSSQL Server Express 2005

    I have to transfer some sites from one server to another and one of them accesses a MSSQLServer. I made the trasnferenceo of the sites and then i got an error regarding the database access. After some "googling" around i found that i had no enabled MSSQL access on my php. To solve this problem I installed freetds and PDO_DBLIB.
    After the installation of this site i stopped getting the anoying error "driver not found" and got the following error:

    Error!: SQLSTATE[01002] Adaptive Server connection failed (severity 9)
    I've setup a test page to allow the connection to my server:

     // define( 'INC_DIR', "../../../inc/" );                                                               
      define( 'INC_DIR', "/var/ESR/tools/inc/" );
      include( INC_DIR . "common.php" );
      include( INC_DIR . "login.php" );                                                                     
      $conServer      = connection( 'dblib', 'my_server_ip:1433' ,'my_db', 'my_user', 'my_pass', false )    ;
    The connection is made using the following function:

    function connection($driver, $host, $dbname, $user, $pass, $die = true )
     //  print( "[Connecting to database: $dbname - host: $host]" );
      try {
         $conn = new PDO("$driver:host=$host;dbname=$dbname", $user, $pass /*, array( PDO::FETCH_ASSOC )*/ );
         $conn->setAttribute(PDO::ATTR_ERRMODE, PDO::ERRMODE_EXCEPTION);
      catch (PDOException $e) {
         print "Error!: " . $e->getMessage() . "<br />";
         if ( !$die ) return null;
      return $conn;
    my php has the following configuration regarding PDO:

    $ php -i | grep PDO
    PDO support => enabled
    PDO drivers => dblib, mysql
    PDO Driver for FreeTDS/Sybase DB-lib => enabled
    PDO Driver for MySQL => enabled

    if i try:
    $ telnet my_ip 1433
    I can access the mssql server

    Can anyone give me a hand on this one?
