Setting Oracle from WAMP

Hello Experts,

I have installed WAMP on my local desktop and also downloaded phporacleview and kept the folder under WWW path.

Now I have a local database i.e. Oracle version 10.2.0.

Now I want to use phporacleview as similar to myphpadmin for MYSQL database.

Please help me in setting php page to Oracle.

You need to install InstantClient in your local desktop to enable communication between php and oracle.

Basically, the steps to install InstantClient on your desktop are

1. Download from
2. Unzip this file in c:\instantclient (or other folder you want)
3. Create file tnsnames.ora in folder c:\instantclient
4. Configure  tnsnames.ora as you need.
5. My Computer > Properties > Advanced options > Environment variables > System variables
   5.1 Modify PATH and set value c:\instantclient;<CURRENT_PATH_VALUE>
   5.2 Create TNS_ADMIN and set value c:\instantclient\tnsnames.ora
6. Edit php.ini and uncomment
7. Restart Apache

At this time, you can acces Oracle using php/apache.

I hope this instructions help you.

Attaching the phporacleview file that I have downloaded.

Instant client path or oracle home path?

or just let me know how to do the settings.
