    Red face Unanswered: need help -- connecting oracle with php

    i am tried of trying to connect the oracle dbms to php.
    at first the php wasn't able to locate the oci.dll file.

    so, i downloaded the latest Oracle client driver and copied it to 'oracle\bin'.

    now php can find the oci.dll file. but when i tried to execute the following codes the httpd crashes.

    $conn = OCILogon("system","123", $tnsName);

    $stmt = OCIParse($conn,"select * from emp where empno > :emp order by empno");
    $emp = 7900;
    OCIBindByName($stmt, ':emp', $emp);
    $ok = OCIExecute($stmt);
    while (OCIFetchInto($stmt,$arr)) {
    echo "<hr>";

    does any one know what is the problem.

    sorry for my english.
    again sorry if the question is posted in wrong section . because i cant understand what is the problem .

    have a nice week.bye.

    PHP is crashing Apache, so you post to an Oracle forum for answers.
    Good Luck with solving your problem.
    Just out of idle curiosity, has anyone ever successfully connected to Oracle using PHP on this system?
    If so, you might want to look at the working code.
    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.
    Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement.
