Problems with the Windows version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.

Hi There

I am getting the below error when visiting a webpage hosted via Xammp

Fatal error: Call to undefined function mssql_connect()

The same code/page is running on a different version of Xammp on a different machine and it runs fine so i know its not the coding. I remember i had to edit php.ini and add a mssql.dll to extensions but i have also done this to no avail.

Can someone supply a walk through or link please?

You cannot add mssql to your Xampp installation, it has been removed since PHP 7.0.0. See

This feature was REMOVED in PHP 7.0.0.

and also

This extension is not available anymore on Windows with PHP 5.3 or later.
