on win 64, I installed apache, php etc. Everything works fine, except the oracle part. I can connect to oracle from sql developer which means my tnsnames.ora file is correct. When apache starts, there are no errors in the logs. But when I try to connect to oracle from my database, oracle module php_oci8.dll is not loaded. What am I doing wrong?

  1. The oci8.dll line in php.ini is there, it is uncommented
  2. There are no errors in the apache logs
  3. extension_dir in php.ini file points to the correct location

Try to reinstall php or download a new package, check where php.ini actually location via phpinfo page, and last check whether you have php_oci8.dll extension or you don't.
