I am using PHP- Apache server in a RedHat 8 environment.
I want to create queries using this configuration in a remote Oracle8i (8.1.5.) database hosted by RS6000 AIX machine. What should I do? Thanks.

    Set up an Oracle Net listener on the machine with the DB. The machine
    running PHP needs local Oracle client libraries installed. The PHP
    connection call (OCILogon or ADOdb's $db->Connect) simply specifies
    the Oracle Net connection identifier (a.k.a. TNS alias) for the DB.

    Schematically the data flow looks something like:

    PHP OCI calls -> Oracle client libraries -> Oracle Net across the
    network -> Oracle Net listener -> Oracle DB
