Nick, I had checked all the things you mentioned before emailing yesterday and had done an Apache restart so I tried your suggestion of starting Apache in debug mode this morning. Lo and behold it started working properly. I'm not sure what went wacky.

Thanks for your help!

Subject: PHP Won't Use unixODBC

Our Linux admin virtualized a server (moved it from its physical home to VMWare) and now PHP scripts that use unixODBC no longer work properly. I can remotely connect to the server and run isql to query any of the DSNs or I can run the PHP script from the command line successfully, but through the browser (Apache) I get the following error: 

[unixODBC][Cache ODBC][State : 08S01][Native Code 461]
Communication link failure
This error indicates to me two things, it acknowledges the DSN exists and that it's pointing to the right driver. Ideas?
