oci8 extension in xampp for solaris

Postby aliyesami » 27. April 2008 18:03

hi !

I am using xampp for windows and the oci8 extension (and all others) are placed in a directory called 'EXT' under the base.
In solaris there is no such directory in /opt/xampp and there is a directory called MODULES but no oci8 module there , so if I uncomment the line "extension=php_oci8.dll" from the php.ini file the oci8 module does not get enabled (checked it via phpinfo.php).

I have two questions :
1- how do I enable oci8 extension in php for solaris ?
2- why on solaris platform the php.ini file contains extenstions like <name>.dll ? because .dll is a windows file type, or is it just symbolic ?

Hallo everyone,
I am trying to turn on Oci8 support for Solaris, as the previous posts, no problem on Ubuntu but I can't understand how to make it on Solaris.
I have Solaris 2.8 and Xampp for Solaris 0.9.
Did anyone succeded?
Thanks in advance.

the xampp on solaris does not have oci8 support since the php that comes with it is not compiled with oci8 version, I tried it and it never worked.
