I have got a virtual server running opensuse 11.4 with apache, php, oracle instantclient, and oci installed through pecl.
The steps it took for me to have it up and running on 11.4 were:
# Install instantclient rpm -Uvh oracle-instantclient11.2-basic-184.108.40.206.0.x86_64.rpm rpm -Uvh oracle-instantclient11.2-devel-220.127.116.11.0.x86_64.rpm # Install OCI8 through pecl pecl install oci8 # add oci8 to modules vi /etc/php5/conf.d/oci8.ini extension=oci8.so # add LD_LIBRARY_PATH to apache vi /etc/sysconfig/apache2 # add to bottom of script export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/usr/lib/oracle/11.2/client64/lib" # restart Apache /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
Celebrating the same procedure on a fresh installation of OpenSUSE 12.1 results in apache throwing the following message at startup:
PHP Warning: PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library '/usr/lib64/php5/extensions/oci8.so' - libnnz11.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory in Unknown on line 0
I can't get any explanation, why it is working for 11.4 and in 12.1 it stops working.
Can someone please point me in the right direction..
