    You need to install at a minimum the Oracle Client piece from the Linux Database CD pack.

    The location whrere you install it will be what you need to set your ORACLE_HOME to point to.

    Hope this helps,

    Hi luiz:

    You need a OCI Client libary installed in linux to compile PHP with this library. Or the second option it's install an rpm version made for another guy.
    You can visit
    an see a example. The rpm that you need it's


    But it's only for a redhat 7.2,7.3

    I don't know if it working in your linux 8 server.
    If not work you can find in your Oracle cd instalation a client and install in your linux server.
    After that compile PHP.
