I am a follower of this site and I'm pretty sure my questions will be solved here. This is regarding PHP to use in Oracle. Can someone send me steps in preparing my PHP installation for connecting to Oracle databases? Or how to configure PHP so it can be able to use Oracle. Thank you.
Configuring PHP to use in Oracle
PHP can be built using libraries to use in ORACLE and be created in GUI. This is mainly referred to as ORACLE_HOME installation. You can built it free using the oracle instant client and install as a zip file then ensure it is not in ORACLE_HOME environment. Another way to do it is by installing the PHP extenstions statically combined in the PHP executables or even built as sharing binary. If you follow the option of building as binaries then you have to ensure you load it into PHP as a result of setting php.ini.options, when you do this it helps in ensuring you do not affect the other PHPs. At least one of this ways will help you sort your troubles.
