PHP under the Linux/unix to connect Oracle8 is very easy, but under the Windows platform is not easy, I after a long exploration to find a reliable way, do not dare to enjoy alone,
It is now published for the feast.
The author uses the development environment:
Windows 98 Second Edition
Apache 1.3.14 Window Edition
Oracle 8.05 clients
PHP has been installed in a CGI way after the test succeeded. Test with the following code
$conn = Ocilogon ("CINMSIII", "CINMSIII", "(DESCRIPTION = (address = (PROTOCOL = TCP) (HOST = 192.168.3.202) (PORT = 1521)) (CON Nect_data = (SID = unicom)));
$conn=ocilogon ("CINMSIII", "CINMSIII", "Cinms"); If the Oracle client is 8.1.6i, this can be done with the parameter
About Connection parameter issues:
The connection string is set to the following:
(DESCRIPTION = (address = (PROTOCOL = TCP) (HOST = 192.168.3.202) (PORT = 1521)) (Connect_data = (SID = unicom))
PROTOCOL: Network protocol for use
Host: for database server hostname
SID: An instance number for the database
There is generally no problem after this.
If your Oracle 8 client is 8.1.6i Enterprise Edition, you can set these parameters in the connection string with the Oracle8 Net Easy Config utility.
The set name of the connection string is passed in as a connection string.
Presumably Oracle 7.x can also use this method, because there is no environment, no test, if you are interested can try.
