Creating PHP CRUD Apps with SQL Server on your Server or in the Azure Cloud

Here’s a nifty feature for those of you who are both PHP savvy and have data in a SQL database: You can now build PHP CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) applications to work against SQL Server, SQL Azure and Windows Azure Storage. The application, open sourced and hosted on Codeplex, is installable on Windows and supports data navigation, paging, sorting and UI customization using simple CSS.

All you need is a PHP web server, an internet connection, and SQL Server 2005 or higher. The free SQL Server Express can also be used. This is available as part of the Web Platform installer.
