Hi Kevin,


For Horizon ILS you need to install php-mssql it works for both Sybase and Microsoft DB.


In the …vufind/web/config/config.ini


driver          = Horizon


Then check the Horizon.ini file


host        =  ; better if you put de ip number

port        = 5000     ; 2025 or the port number that you are using for the Sybase Server

username    = sa             

password    = x76y8d9       ; the real password that you use in the SPUD for sybase  

database    = horizon74      ;


If these are OK, and you are receiving a 500 error… maybe you have a trouble with the apache/httpd settings.


Good luck
