Re: wamp php oracle connection problem


I don't know what versions of apache, php, or mysql you are using so this may not apply, but I found this information at :

"10-Apr-2007 10:56
I had a problem loading php_oci8.dll with php 5.2, Apache, and windows XP - a module not loaded error, on every apache restart.
I eventually found that I had to add the oracle instantclient library path to the %PATH% under SYSTEM and not under USER. Doing that, and then rebooting, fixed the error - as Apache is starting as a service (outside the user setup)."

Hope this helps. -Randy
