PHP5 and Oracle support?

P: n/a
I've been scouring for information about this for quite some time now
and so far I'm at a loss to the proper/correct way to compile PHP 5.x
with Oracle 9i for Sparc Solaris. Does anyone have the straight dope
on the definitive method?

Thanks

Try doing:
../configure --help | grep oracle

I think the module is oci and/or oracle something or other.

Also I'm sure if you google it, the information will be readily
available to you.

Google? What's that? A new startup or something?

Seriously 'bro, I've gone through all the resources from php.net, to
oracle.com, and all of the forums and websites out there including
ADODB. They all assume you're using the old PHP4 with builtin
support. Not so relevant anymore with PHP5 since they took out the
builtin support.

Ada ide yang lain, nggak?

Try doing:

I think the module is oci and/ororaclesomething or other.

Ya look, here's what I found from google:
http://www.orafaq.com/faqphp.htm#CONFIG

I don't know the condition of the server, and assuming you want a step
by step instruction:
1. Download oracle
2. Install
3. Configure php using --with-oracle=/path/to/oracle/home/dir
4. Compile PHP
5. install PHP

And no, I'm not assuming you are using PHP4.

3. Configure php using --with-oracle=/path/to/oracle/home/dir
Except that with Oracle 9i you are much better off using the OCI8 lib
rather than the older oracle lib.

php.ini
extension = php_oci8.dll

compile
-with-oci8=/path/to/oracle/home/dir
