> ORA-12154: TNS:could not resolve the connect identifier
makes me assume that testdb is not correct tns name... maybe testdb.world is?
for that to correct, we need to look at the tnsnames.ora and sqlnet.ora file in the relevant oracle home directory \network\admin

yes angleIII, problem solved

<?php
if ($c = oci_connect ("hr", "hr", "xe")) {
  echo "Successfully connected to Oracle.\n";
  oci_close($c);
} else {  
  echo "Oracle Connect Error ";
}
?>

the tns name was "xe"

do you know some site where i can get some query display sample code for php oracle just like the site asp101?

"everything" for php should be findable on php.net (via google) or the main index of the language reference.
