Ready, steady, go: I just caught news from OTN: 11g for Linux is out. It is downloadable from here.
On the PHP front: the OCI8 and PDO_OCI8 extensions work with it but because library names have changed to 11.1, the install script needs to be updated. I will merge a build patch for this very soon to PHP's CVS. Until then try this hack patch:
- Edit ext/oci8/config.m4 and ext/pdo_oci/config.m4 and change occurrences of 10.1 to 11.1
- rm -rf config.cache configure
- ./buildconf --force
- Re-run your configure and make commands.
Now that Oracle Database 11g is available, we will be accepting customers interested in testing the planned PHP OCI8 extension changes that make it work with DRCP. These changes are still being worked on and are not public yet. Ping me if you are interested in helping us finalize them.
Update: this entry was reposted with a URL change to the download link.
Update 2: This morning I merged updated config.m4's for OCI8
. They will ship with PHP 5.2.4 and in PECL OCI8 1.2.4.
