Thanks for the feedback. I had some initial problems compiling PDO_OCI against oracle's instant client. A couple symlinks fixed those error: cd $instant_client_home ln -s lib . ln -s sdk/include . One OCI feature not implemented in PDO_OCI is bind_array_by_name(). I'm using that to pass arrays to procedures so that means I can't use PDO for now.
