I am trying to get a php oracle connection working. I see hundreds of entries into all sorts of forums but have been unable to come up with the correct combination of software versions to make the connection properly. I am using the following software versions:
Windows Server 2003 service pack 2
Oracle Net8 Client 8.0.6.00
Oracle Database 7.3.4
From what I have read and tried. PHP5 will not work with Client 8.0.6 so I downloaded Oracles Instant Client which got me past the oci8 functions not showing up as a set of available functions.
Now the Oracle Instant Client will not connect to version 7.3.4 of the database because of the Service_Name, SID difference.
Has anyone come up with the correct combination of software versions to get this connection working.
