oci8 3.0.0

Extension for Oracle Database


The OCI8 extension lets you access Oracle Database.

Use 'pecl install oci8' to install for PHP 8.

Use 'pecl install oci8-2.2.0' to install for PHP 7.

Use 'pecl install oci8-2.0.12' to install for PHP 5.2 - PHP 5.6.

Use 'pecl install oci8-1.4.10' to install for PHP 4.3.9 - PHP 5.1.

The OCI8 extension can be linked with Oracle client libraries from Oracle Database 10.2 or later. These libraries are found in your database installation, or in the free Oracle Instant Client from https://www.oracle.com/database/technologies/instant-client.html.

Oracle's standard cross-version connectivity applies. For example, PHP OCI8 linked with Instant Client 19c can connect to Oracle Database 11.2 onward. See Oracle's note "Oracle Client / Server Interoperability Support" (ID 207303.1) for details.
