Hello all! This is my first time on here. I am working on a project where I need to access a Oracle DB. I am trying to enable oci8.so extension in PHP. I have been doing a lot of searching on how to install the extension, but I have been unsuccessful. I have been working with tutorials on how to download the Oracle instantclient basic and sdk. I believe I compiled instantclient and them built the extension. I moved the oci8.so extension into the php extension folder, but the extension is not loading when I would restart Apache. First, can oci8.so be enabled on XAMPP? If so, can someone help me on how to enable this extension? Your help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
