Stuck With Oracle

P: n/a
I have SuSE 9.1, Apache2 and PHP installed. I want to use it against an
existing Oracle database on the same server, but when SuSE installs PHP, it
is only with mysql support.

I am reading that I need to recomplile PHP with "--with-oci8" option. SuSE
does not have the PHP source on their website, just the binaries. Does this
mean that I have to wipe clean my PHP and Apache install, download the
source, and recompile it?

I am not an advanced Linux user so this sounds daunting to me. Is there
another way around it? I was reading that I might just be able to put a
line for Oracle similar to "extension=mysql.so" in my /etc/php.ini file. Of
course I would need the Oracle .so from somewhere.

Any help would be appreciated. I don't relish the thought of starting over.

Yes, go to the php site, download the source, and build it from scratch.
