    Fatal error: Call to undefined function oci_connect()

    654522
      Hi every1,

      I am new to the forums, and i really need help here basically i keep getting the following error message:
      Fatal error: Call to undefined function oci_connect() in C:\wamp\www\film_explosion\include\db_connection.php on line 6

      I have checked the file and there is nothing wrong as you can see:

      <?php
      session_start();
                
      //if ($conn = oci_connect('scott', 'tiger', 'Development'))
      //For Localhost with local oracle db
      if ($conn = oci_connect('scott', 'tiger', '//localhost/xe'))
      {
           //print 'Successfully connected to Oracle Database!';     
      }
      else
      {
           $errmsg = oci_error();
           print 'Oracle connection failed, Please check username, password and service name in oci_connect: ' . $errmsg['message'];
      }
      ?>


      Also i have made the neccessary changes in the php.ini files to communicate with oracle etc. I just dont understand this error it appears to not to under the "oci_connect()" function this is really strange.

      Can anybody help me please?


      Thanks all.

          Sure. You probably don't have OCI8 module enabled. Please, post the output of
          php -r 'phpinfo();'

            Thanks for your reply, however i have changed the ini file which is to uncomment the line, below shows the example.

            ;extension=php_ming.dll
            ;extension=php_msql.dll
            ;extension=php_mssql.dll
            extension=php_mysql.dll
            extension=php_mysqli.dll
            extension=php_oci8.dll
            ;extension=php_openssl.dll
            extension=php_pdo.dll
            ;extension=php_pdo_fireb


            Any other suggestions as i am very confused.


            Thanks

              Nice. Please post the output of phpinfo so that I can ascertain that the OCI8 module really is active.

                Hi there,

                Thanks for your reply however i dont know how do you locate the php info file? the one i searched and found in my wamp/app is the follow information it contains:

                <?php
                /* vim: set expandtab sw=4 ts=4 sts=4: */
                /**
                *
                * @version $Id: phpinfo.php 10240 2007-04-01 11:02:46Z cybot_tm $
                */

                /**
                * Gets core libraries and defines some variables
                */
                define('PMA_MINIMUM_COMMON', true);
                require_once './libraries/common.inc.php';


                /**
                * Displays PHP information
                */
                if ($GLOBALS['cfg']['ShowPhpInfo']) {
                phpinfo();
                }
                ?>

                Is this what you wanted me to post?

                Thanks

                        This output should tell you whether the OCI8 module is functional or not. Here is what the relevant part should look like:
                        oci8

                        OCI8 Support => enabled
                        Version => 1.2.4
                        Revision => $Revision: 1.269.2.16.2.38 $
                        Active Persistent Connections => 0
                        Active Connections => 0
                        Oracle Version => 10.1
                        Compile-time ORACLE_HOME => /ORACLE/app/oracle/product/client
                        Libraries Used =>
                        Temporary Lob support => enabled
                        Collections support => enabled

                        Directive => Local Value => Master Value
                        oci8.default_prefetch => 10 => 10
                        oci8.max_persistent => -1 => -1
                        oci8.old_oci_close_semantics => 0 => 0
                        oci8.persistent_timeout => -1 => -1
                        oci8.ping_interval => 60 => 60
                        oci8.privileged_connect => Off => Off
                        oci8.statement_cache_size => 20 => 20

                        Do you have something like that in the output?

                            You have to install OCI8 module. I haven't worked with Windows-based servers in a while so I can't give you any more details.

                              Check you have Oracle 10.2 or Oracle Instant Client 10.2 installed.

                              Unless you want WAMP for a particular reason, perhaps Zend Core for Oracle would give you an appropriate PHP stack?

                                Chris, I second that. Zend Core for Oracle is an excellent product, simple, reliable and easy to configure, yet it gives you the full power of Oracle, PHP and Apache. Unfortunately, it seems that people do not know enough about it.
