I'm working my way through some Oracle tutorials and I'm learning the rudiments of building apps within Oracle, but today I need to start popping the hood on connecting to an Oracle database and retrieving / displaying info via php on a web page.

I'm finding lots of tutorials that demo building apps within Oracle, but I've got to access the database through PHP and I want to start kicking the tires on my localhost.

How do I set it up?

I'm not sure I understand the question.

Are you asking how/what Oracle database to install locally or how to connect to the database you have already installed/created?
