Chris Jones' Blog:
Building PHP 5.3 with Oracle HTTP Server 11g
March 24, 2011 @ 13:04:07

The latest post on Chris Jones's blog walks you through the process, step-by-step, of how to build PHP 5.3 with support for the Oracle HTTP server included with the 11g version of the database.

I get the impression that not a lot of people in the PHP community are using Itanium. There are enough warnings during PHP compilation that would make me extremely uncomfortable using it for production applications. A PHP on Itanium installation bug that I logged long ago has not been patched, indicating to me that not many PHP people are investing time in the platform. I can't recommend using Itanium platform for PHP. Anyway, I had a need and here are the steps for posterity.

It's a pretty simple process (if you're used to compiling your own software):

  • Checks the OS and compiler to ensure needed tools are installed
  • Set up the Oracle environment variables
  • Set up the PHP environment
  • Copy over the needed header files
  • Extract PHP and modify its configure slightly
  • make distclean and then configure
