I did not see an answer on php-install. I have also tried oci8, but I get the error mentioned at the bottom of my post. I have the ORA_HOME set, both on the shell level and the makefile level. I look under the ORA_HOME root with 'find ORA_HOME -name oci.h -print', and I get nothing. When I look for all headers, '*.h', I get none of the ones missing for php oci8 or oracle options. Thanks for the quote below, I will then want to look more to the oci8 calls then. Unfortunately, neither oci8 or oracle php option let me compile, due to the respective missing header files.

Jones Cc: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Subject: Re: [PHP-DB] oracle compilation with php 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."
