Zend Core for Oracle 2.0 Released
By Alison Holloway on May 24, 2007
Zend have just released a new version of Zend Core for Oracle. This is a prebuilt and tested stack of Apache, PHP and Oracle Instant Client. If you haven't used it before, you will like the easy setup. I promise.
Try this with an existing Oracle database install, or download and install Oracle Database XE, our free database.
Zend Core for Oracle is also supported with Oracle Enterprise Linux.
Zend Core for Oracle release 2.0 includes PHP 5.2.1, the refactored OCI8 driver, Oracle Instant Client, and an optional Apache HTTP Server 2.2.2.
Zend Core for Oracle is supported by Zend on the following operating systems:
* Oracle Enterprise Linux
* X86 running SLES9 or RHEL3 or RHEL4
* X86 running Windows XP/2003/Vista
* X86-64 running Windows Vista in 32bit mode
* X86-64 running SLES9 or RHEL3 or RHEL4
* pSeries running AIX 5.2 or 5.3
* Sun Solaris Sparc 8, 9 10
The web servers that are supported are:
* Apache 1.3.x (except on Windows Vista), Apache 2.x
* Oracle HTTP Server 10.1.2.0.0 (on Linux and Windows x86)
* Microsoft IIS 5, 6, 7
Zend Core for Oracle is supported (by Zend) against Oracle Database 10g and 9i. That means that you can have a fully supported stack of database, web server and PHP.
If you aren't sure how to use it, or want more information on install, configuration, and use, go and have a read of the Underground PHP and Oracle Manual. Yet another handy resource for all things PHP and Oracle. And another shameless plug from me.
Don't forget there are lots of articles, FAQs, downloads and links at the OTN PHP Developer Center.
