    Add some error checking after the connection call. During development, you might consider editing your php.ini file and setting display_errors to on. Also set error_reporting = E_ALL | E_STRICT (in PHP 5.3 or earlier) or the equivalent error_reporting = E_ALL (in PHP 5.4). Also check your Apache error log for any library issues.

    There is some useful information in the free book http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/topics/php/underground-php-oracle-manual-098250.html
    In particular, check "Handling OCI8 Errors" at the bottom of page 138.

    Off topic, your $db string is equivalent to the much simpler: $db = "";
