I was fighting with php + Apache build/compilation with Oracle... Sometimes it finish well, sometime too, but sometimes former php's pages didn't connect with Oracle.

Just a look over documentation and everithing it's clear:

  • php build/compiling with Oracle's versions prior 7.3 must be done with --with-oracle=$PATH_TO_ORACLE_HOME
  • php build/compiling with Oracle's versions after 7.3 must be done with --with-oci8=$PATH_TO_ORACLE_HOME

I hope this note would help some body else...

  • RedHat leaves end user distribution, and Fedora comes to this place, supported by RedHat too, but not a RedHat product.
  • Novell buy Ximian in August and now buy Suse
