I see the answer has already been given on php-install.
A suggestion which hasn't been made is to use PHP's new oci8 interface in preference to the old one called "oracle" whenever possible.
To quote from a note on Oracle's PHP forum (see http://forums.oracle.com/forums/forum.jsp?forum=178 )
"There are several reasons why I'd want to use PHP's OCI8 instead of ora_ calls: better Oracle behavior, performance and support, ability to use LOBs, and perhaps OCI8 is more widely used with better PHP support and examples."

(I also posted this to php-install this morning, but decided to see if I might get some more help in this group - sorry for any cross postings.)
We are on Tru64 5.1 and I am trying to compile php 4.3.4. I get the following error:
cc: Severe: /src/net/www/php-4.3.4/ext/oracle/php_oracle.h, line 23: Cannot find file "ocidfn.h" specified in #include directive. (noinclfilef) #include "ocidfn.h" -^
I cannot find this include file anywhere in the oracle installation or the php installation. The oracle version is 126.96.36.199.0.
I have also try oci8, but no luck there either - it can't find "oci.h".
Thanks for any help. Cheers, Douglas
