----- PHP Connect to Remote Oracle DB----- Please HELP

Postby EMCVelocity » Thu Jun 16, 2011 11:12 am

http://us.php.net/manual/en/oci8.installation.php

Following this tutorial, I have done these:

1. Downloaded Oracle Instant Client. Added the path.
2. OCI8 was installed when I install Wamp. I uncommitted the line in php.ini.
3. Restarted the whole wamp.

----The problem now seems to be OCI8 was not configured correctly so I got the error "Call to undefined function oci_connect() ".

I am guessing I need to install Instant Client correctly in order to use OCI8. In this instruction, it says:

./configure --with-oci8=shared,instantclient,/path/to/instant/client/lib


But where do I type this? What am I missing?

you should do this from the command prompt of path/to/instant/client/lib

Thanks.

But where is path? I unzip the Instant Client but there is no folder under it called "path" or "to" or "instant" or "client" or "lib".

Could you please be more specific?

Thanks!
