I compiled my PHP & Apache with the Oracle 8.1.7 client for Linux. Oracle
10g can only communicate with Oracle 10g & Oracle 9i. The 8.1.7 client
can communicate with Oracle 7, 8, 8i, 9i, & 10g. I also have a
configuration compiled against the 220.127.116.11 client but it can not
communicate with Oracle 7. So I would suggest using the 8i or 9i client
if you have the need to connect to and Oracle 8.x database as well as a

[PHP-DB] Apache2+PHP5, Connecting to multiple Oracle servers
I use Apache2+PHP5 on Linux to connect to an Oci8 compliant
remote Oracle server. I have compiled PHP against the Oracle
client release 10.1.0. This works fine so far.
I need to connect to an older remote Oracle server, too.
This Oracle version is 8.0.5 which seems to be too old to work
with the same configuration.
I guess I have two options:
- To install an older Oracle client release for Linux and
configure PHP with Oci7 (is 8.0.5 oci7 compliant?) and Oci8.
- To use odbc with the older Oracle.
I thought it might be a good idea to use odbc so I configured
PHP with iodbc driver manager support. Unfortunately, I can't
find an Oracle odbc driver for Linux! There seem to be commercial
drivers but are they worth buying?
If I decided to install a native Oracle client for the older
database, which client version should I choose?
Thank you for your ideas on this matter!
