How to prepare an ADS Connection

Hello. I am a private contractor for a company as a DBA and need to setup a connection to their Advantage database, for integration with a web portal and PHP application that I am building for them. I have already created a web_view on the database server.

I still need to find out version information but I believe they may be running an older version of Advantage. I have a separate cloud-based VPS server with LiquidWeb that I will be connecting from but once built, we may end up hosting the portal on their own server (I am friends with the network admin there).

Anyway, I was hoping such an experienced community could point me in the right direction so I can get off on the right foot? Perhaps you guys can tell me what information I need to collect first, and then suggest possible steps based on those findings? I've only built a few small PHP applications that work with MySQL databases, so I am still learning about PHP connections.
