Combining an Oracle Database with PHP to Manage Data
Oct 08, 2007 @ 07:56:00

Developer.com has posted a new article today from Deepak Vohra taking a look at the powerful combination of an Oracle database and PHP to create a simple, example app.

In this article, you will install PHP's OCI extension for Oracle database, decide which connection method to use, create a database, and retrieve data from that database and display it in a table.

They walk through the installation of the extension (on a Windows machine), some of the configuration directives you can set in the php.ini, the Oracle functions, and finally a look at connection methods and inserting/viewing information from a table. The complete code/sql for the article is also included.
