PHP 5.0.2 on Windows 2003 connecting to a remote Oracle 9i
Posted on 2004-10-30
I've installed PHP 5.0.2 on Windows 2003 Web Server. The standard PHPINFO page is correctly displayed, but I don't know how to tell if the extensions are properly loading (i am using OCI8). When I run the Oracle test page it failed to load the OCI_LOGIN function. I'm guessing that the extension is not being loaded because IIS6 is much more restrictive on what DLLS it will allow to be loaded.
I've been working with the INVISION BBS people, but this not their problem. Is there a recommended procedure for
1) locating the PHP.INI file (does the system really need a reboot after changes?)
2) once the OCI8 extension is enabled - is there a new section added to PHPINFO?
3) in addition to adding the PHP5 DLL to the allowed web extension, do I need to add anything else (maybe the extensions?)
I've found references for Windows 2000 - but nothing in the IIS6 world.
