I am having trouble logging onto Oracle via PHP on a Windows 2000 machine.

I keep getting the error:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function OCILogon() in C:\Program
Files\Apache Group\Apache2\htdocs\oraconnect.php on line 15

I seem to have everything set up correctly.  I am running an Oracle 9i
client and have set up the php.ini file with "extension=php_oci8.dll"
uncommented, left ";extension=php_oracle.dll" commented. (Although I have
tried various combinations of these two.  Also I have set the "extension_dir
= C:\Program Files\PHP\ext" correctly and noted that php_oci8.dll and
php_oracle.dll exist there.

Now here is where it gets really weird and I could use some help:

It works fine from the command line:

I type "php oraconnect.php" for the following code:
$username = "SCOTT";
$passwd = "TIGER";
 //          (ADDRESS_LIST=
  //           (ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=TCP)
   //            (HOST=orahostname1)(PORT=1621)
    //         )
     //      )
   //  )";
$conn = OCILogon("SCOTT","TIGER","TESTDB");
if (!$conn)
   echo "Connection failed";
   echo "Error Message: [" . OCIError($conn) . "]";
   echo "Connected!";

It works either way with the env_variables in the script or with them
commented out from the command line.  I just can't get it to work from the

Can anyone out there help me with this one?  I have some experience with
Oracle, Perl, and a little Java but not so much with PHP.
