Hi
I am using PHP and Oracle 8i on win2000Server I set up oracle fine. Everything is running in SQLplus and even in the coldfusion using the ODBC connection. But when I use the oci8.dll and oracle.dll and odbc function it gives me error like


Warning: Oracle: Connection Failed: ORA-12638: Credential retrieval failed in c:\inetpub\wwwroot\php\oracle.php on line 3

I had already set the env variables ORACLE_HOME< ORECLE_SID etc.

Please Help me

maybe you should try  oci function in php instead of ODBC.

I think this line indicates that I use both of the functions.

odbc and oci8 are different sets of functions.
anyway, can you post your code for connect oracle then?

you didn't setup the oracle variable correctly. so php doesn't know about the default oracle db name. also, er.... wrong grammar. try the code list below

<?php
PutEnv("ORACLE_SID=harry.deepblue");
$user="system";
$pass="manager";

$connection = Ora_Logon ($user, $pass);
if (!$connection){
  echo Ora_ErrorCode($connection).": ".Ora_Error($connection)."<BR>";
  exit;
}  

?>
