RE: Help with Oracle client support in PHP



Hi Moby, thanks for your reply.
How does the unixODBC driver work?  Is it a package to install?  Do I have to reconfigure PHP at all?

Thanks,

I am using PHP on SuSE and connecting to Oracle databases fine via 
unixODBC and installing the unixODBC drivers from Oracle.  Have you 
tried that route?
