I am trying to connect to a remote oracle database from an IIS machine using PHP. Starting very basic my code is
if ($conn = oci_connect(username, passowrd, server:port/instance')
echo 'Successfully connected to Oracle Database!';
$errmsg = oci_error();
echo 'Oracle connection failed' . $errmsg['message'];
I can connect to the oracle db using sql developer and the command prompt.
But every time I attempt a connection using this code I get an error "Fatal PHP error: call to undefined function oci_connect() in c:\inetpub\wwwroot\connection.php on line 3"
I can run a basic html and PHP page on the machine.
So, I tried to check my PHP info on command prompt and I got another error which,"PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library 'C:\PHP\ext\php_oci8_12c.dll'"
any help to start me on the proper path is great.
I have oracle instant client installed: c:\oracle\instantclient_12_1\
I have oracle PHP installed: c:\PHP
My website and PHP code is located at: F:\ inetpub\wwwroot\
