Chris Jones' Blog:
The PHP "./configure --with-oci8" Option in Detail
March 13, 2009 @ 07:58:07

Just for those PHP & Oracle users out there Chris Jones has posted a new entry to his Oracle blog detailing the different ways you can compile with oci8 support.

PHP OCI8 can be built using libraries from a full Oracle Database (or Database "Client") install, created from running the GUI installer. This is often referred to as an "ORACLE_HOME" install, since an environment variable of that name is set to the installed Oracle software directory. [...] Another dimension to the install is that PHP extensions can be statically compiled into the PHP executable(s), or built as shared binaries. If OCI8 is built as a shared library it is loaded into PHP as a result of setting the php.ini option "extension=oci8.so".

There's eight different methods he mentions including building it as a shared module, using the normal Oracle libraries to build and using the Instant Client libraries to run the build.
