1) Command-line php and fastcgi php are able to have a different set of
extensions. Look at the phpinfo() output from your fastcgi if it has an mssql

2) You may want to try an ODBTP extension for mssql connectivity which supports
mssql features like 'go' clause batch runs and scroll cursors with fetching
from them on the contrast to the 'traditional' dblib-based mssql php extension.
