Here is the full error:
PHP Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'PDOException' with message 'SQLSTATE SQLConnect: 1033 [unixODBC][Oracle][ODBC][Ora]ORA-01033: ORACLE initialization or shutdown in progress\nProcess ID: 0\nSession ID: 0 Serial number: 0\n'
I am using unixODBC to connect to an oracle 11g database. The database is up and functioning as proof by:
select open_mode from v$database;
open_mode ----------------- read write
The web application of the service is completely functional as well.
and finally, I can run:
isql -v [odbc store] [user] [password]
and query the database just fine that way.
So I am truly at a loss as to why I cannot connect through the ODBC to get what I need. Everything I've read has stated that I should follow a procedure similar to this: link to solve similar problems
Thanks for any input. I'm really at my wits end here.
