PHP OCI8 1.3 RPM is now on ULN

A "php-oci8-11gR1" RPM is now available on the "Unbreakable Linux Network" (http://linux.oracle.com/) in the Oracle channel. If you have the appropriate ULN subscription, you can use 'up2date' or 'yum' to install it and its dependencies (e.g. the Oracle Instant Client 11g RPM).

The php-oci8-11gR1 RPM provides the OCI8 1.3 extension for Oracle DB 9iR2, 10g, and 11g access. It is built for the default PHP. When connected to Oracle DB 11g, DRCP Connection Pooling is available.

Instant Client 10.2.0.4 & 11.1.0.7 RPMs are also available in the Oracle Channel on ULN.

What really is ULN? From its homepage: "ULN is a comprehensive resource for Oracle Unbreakable Linux support subscribers, and offers access to Linux software patches, updates and fixes, along with information on up2date program and support policies."

That's really an exciting news!

One of the Linux PM's pointed out that "ULN doesn't support yum (yet), only up2date"
