Need help in connecting Oracle with PHP Code


Hello,
I am trying to connect Oracle 10 g thru php code. I have IIS on windows 2003 and PHP 5.2.6 installed on the computer and thier extensions for connectiing to MYSQL database. I went thru the tutorials and accordingly installed Oracle client (9.2) on my machine.I configured SQL Net and connect to Oracle.

However, I do not see the files php_oci8.dll anywhere which is needed. The tutorial does not clearly say how one gets this file, as part of installation of PHP or as part of installation of Oracle client.

Anyway, I downloaded that dll from internet and kept at the right place and updated the php.ini file to use the right oracle extenion instead of earlier mysql extension. but now it gives me an error messge that it can not find php4ts.dll.


Some other tutorial suggested to use "Oracle Database Instant Client", I installed that also but that too does not have the file php_oci8.dll

What is the right way to get php_oci8.dll?
Neal

Please ignore the above query.

I followed the steps at
http://www.oracle.com/technology/pub/notes/technote_php_instant.html
and I could configure php_oci8.dll.

Actually I was missing "PHP binary zip file "

Hi,

Today morning due to some reason, I reinstalled Oracle Client 9.2 and after that my earlier configuration is not working.
Details are here.
I have windows 2003 , IIS and PHP 5.2. I have installed "Oracle Instant Client - instantclient-basic-win32-10.2.0.3-20061115 " also as mentioned on the above link.
Added the path of Instant Client along in the PATH variable and then also copied tnasnames.ora in the folder of instant client and then added the TNS_ADMIN.


When I run in test.php, I see that Oci8s support is enabled. but when I use, the command oci_connect, I get following error message.

"ORA-12154: TNS:could not resolve the connect identifier specified"

Is the problem due to Oracle Client 9.2 as well as Oracle instant client installed together in the machine. I need to setup a system DSN to Oracle . Do I need Oracle client 9.2 or I can deinstall it?

Please help. Neal

Please ignore the query again, I got rid of Oracle 9.2 client and Oracle instant client and Installed Oracle 10.2 client and everything is fine now. (My server is Oracle 10.2 and so using Oracle 10.2 client makes sense too.)
