we are not able to connect oracle client on linux. using either odbc_connect,ora_logon or ocilogon.
$cnx = Ora_Logon('portal@PHPora.apcosoft.soft.net','portal');

It gives the TNS : could not resolve service name.

Hi balasudaram,

Please check:
1.- You had set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH in your php scripts
2.- TNSNAMES.ORA is accessible to Apache (apache user is 'nobody' by default)
3.- Test if your Oracle server is visible from your webserver machine:"$ tnsping <database_name>"


Example:
<?php
 putenv("LD_LIBRARY_PATH=LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/u01/app/oracle/lib");

$cnx = Ora_Logon('portal@PHPora.apcosoft.soft.net','portal');
?>

Regards.
