    Informix, IIS and Perl… a frustrating combination


    by mike ·

    I have spent the dat trying to get Informix to work on an IIS box. I normal work in a Linux/Unix enviornment so admittedly it is probably easy for someone who know windows/iis.

    I have tried using ppm (Perl package Manager) and cpan to get the package on, but the best I have managed to accomplish is to get the ODBC DBI module installed without error.

    Can anyone tell me what I need to make the Informix module install and not fail or what I am doing wrong with my DBI connection to the Informix DB using the ODBC module.

    my $dbh = DBI->connect(“DBI:ODBC:database=xxx;,username=xxx,password=xxx”);

    I am probably in the wrong place, or have crossed too many topics, but searching and hunting for help/forum solutions have churned up nothing, so now time to start posting around.

      Mike, you’re in the wrong forum for Informix related questions. There are several highly active forums you can choose. There is a USENET group (comp.databases.informix aka CDI) which has an email gateway alternative ( and there are several topic specific forums maintained by the International Informix Users Group (IIUG – for members. Membership, like Tech Republic membership, is free for the sign-up. Once there the members pages offer a way to subscribe to the IIUG Forums and the CDI email gateway.

      Once you are registered you can post questions and get answers from knowledgeable users and IBM/Informix developers and support personnel.
