No -- you just have to configure your tnsnames.ora so that the web server
can connect. Try sqlplus first. If you can connect with sqlplus, you should
be able to connect from PHP.

Yes, you do need the oracle client.

See http://www.php.net/manual/en/ref.oci8.php for more info. Particularly
see the note on pthread.
