I've a problem with php-oci and I hope anybody can help me. I want to connect with ocilogon to an Oracle Database. If i call my php-Script in the browser, this error message turn up:

Warning: ocilogon() [function.ocilogon]: OCIEnvNlsCreate() failed. There is something wrong with your system - please check that ORACLE_HOME is set and points to the right directory in...

That is very funny, because if i activate the file on the command line - the connect is possible and no error message turns up.

FYI: My System: Ubunutu 6, Apache 2 and php 5-with-oci & Oracle Database 10g (

Thank you for helping.


I'm assuming since you mention the apache, this is a web application...
It looks like the ORACLE_HOME path is not know by apache/PHP. So, you might try stopping apache, and doing something like 'source /etc/profile' or wherever your ORACLE_HOME env variable is set, and then restarting apache and trying again...
