So I installed apache 2, then PHP, and Oci8. Then I installed my database. I installed all the other packages Oracle said that I needed. Apache is working great, the database is fine.

I'm trying to connect to my database.


Here is the php code I'm using to test the connection first in /var/www/html/oci8.php
<?php
$c = oci_pconnect("hr", "welcome", "lionheartdb");
if (!$c) {
$e = oci_error();
trigger_error('Could not connect to database: '. $e['message'],E_USER_ERROR);
}
$s = oci_parse($c, "select city from locations order by city");
if (!$s) {
$e = oci_error($c);
trigger_error('Could not parse statement: '. $e['message'], E_USER_ERROR);
}
$r = oci_execute($s);
if (!$r) {
$e = oci_error($s);
trigger_error('Could not execute statement: '. $e['message'], E_USER_ERROR);
}
echo "<table border='1'>\n";
$ncols = oci_num_fields($s);
echo "<tr>\n";
for ($i = 1; $i <= $ncols; ++$i) {
$colname = oci_field_name($s, $i);
echo " <th><b>".htmlentities($colname, ENT_QUOTES)."</b></th>\n";
}
echo "</tr>\n";
while (($row = oci_fetch_array($s, OCI_ASSOC+OCI_RETURN_NULLS)) != false) {
echo "<tr>\n";
foreach ($row as $item) {
echo " <td>".($item!==null?htmlentities($item,
ENT_QUOTES):"&nbsp;")."</td>\n";
}
echo "</tr>\n";
}
echo "</table>\n";
?>


This is the error I am receiving when I try to run http://localhost.oci8.php from the browser:


Warning: oci_pconnect(): OCIEnvNlsCreate() failed. There is something
wrong with your system - please check that ORACLE_HOME and
LD_LIBRARY_PATH are set and point to the right directories in
/var/www/html/oci8.php on line 3

I've been troubleshooting this error for 2 days now. I know it is saying my environments are not set correctly, but I'm at a lost. Here is my .profile.db settings


ORACLE_HOSTNAME=oracle.localdomain; export ORACLE_HOSTNAME
ORACLE_UNQNAME=lionheartdb; export ORACLE_UNQNAME
ORACLE_BASE=/admdba/lionheartdb/oracle; export ORACLE_BASE
ORACLE_HOME=$ORACLE_BASE/product/11.2.0/lionheartdb; export ORACLE_HOME
ORACLE_SID=lionheartdb; export ORACLE_SID
PATH=/usr/sbin:$PATH; export PATH
PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/bin:$PATH; export PATH


LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/lib; export LD_LIBRARY_PATH


and I also set ORACLE_HOME and LD_LIBRARY_PATH in my /usr/local/apache2/bin/envvars
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/lib; export LD_LIBRARY_PATH
export ORACLE_HOME=$ORACLE_BASE/product/11.2.0/lionheartdb; export ORACLE_HOME




when i go to http://localhost.phpinfo.php to see the values set there this is what I'm shown
oci8

I have no clue where to go from here, do you see anything I missed? Can you point me in the right direction? Thanks
