Support for ODBC System DSNs


It’d would help us connect to SQL Server by providing extra configuration in the connection string, in particular “MultiSubnetFailover=true” so that our “Always On” helpspot database correctly finds the right server. One option is to make a ODBC DSN in Windows, however there doesn’t seem to be a way to specify a DSN in the Helpspot config file. Can you add support for Windows ODBC DSNs in Helpspot?


Hi Clay,

We’ll have to take a look at that and see how the PHP libraries involved handle that.
