You need to acquire the oracle network drivers for linux, from Oracle. I'm
only aware of the ones that come with Oracle for linux, though they may have
them bundled seperately.
Fight your way through the inconcievably difficult installation process.
After defining some environment variables (they can be set after the fact
too) which point the the oracle/home;net drivers, compile php --with-oci8 or
Start apache server the proper set of environment variables, be sure to set
your nls_lang, etc...
Now you should be able to access 'em.
There is a fair amount of work involved, but it seems to be working nicely
for me. A little tenacity will prevail. :-)
Oh, you can put_env(SID=ORCL) etc... in your php code, instead of setting
up environment variables, prior to compile/apache start. If you have
mutiple instances, this may be the preferred method. With a single
instance, I find it simpler to start apache w/a script that sets the
variables prior to startup.
Oh yeah, lots of reading is involved too.... ;-)
