First :
you need to install the "oracle client" onto the machine where your
webserver is. Ask your dba for that.
(I hope you're not a newbie with oracle).
With the oracle 8 client, it is possible to connect both oracle 7 and oracle

Second :
you need to compile php with oci extension, or in windows, uncomment

Three :
try this tutorial : simple connection to Oracle with PHP :

You would also want to use a wrapper to access your database. Useful even if
you don't plan to switch between databases. My favorite is adodb

Well, after that, we're ready for more questions !
Hope it will help you
