- First, you need php compile with --oci - Then, you have to install the "oracle client". Note : you can't find the "oracle client" alone. you need to download the entire oracle (500Mb !!) at http://otn.oracle.com/software/products/oracle8i/content.html and then choose in the setup to install the oracle client. After that, it would be possible to connect your remote oracle with ocilogon($username, $pw, $host). > host (e.g. somewhere.somewhere.com) Note that I'm dubitative about your example. host is normally a string you should see in the oracle file tnsnames.ora. I've never seen a "host" oracle variable as an url ?? Hope it will help you Regards, Phlippe -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
