Querying Oracle 10.2 from XAMPP on Ubuntu

Just a quick note on how I got my XAMPP install talking to an Oracle 10.2 db:
  1. Get Oracle InstantClient (you'll have to register):
    - http://download.oracle.com/otn/linux/instantclient/10205/sqlplus-10.2.0.5.0-linux.zip
    - http://download.oracle.com/otn/linux/instantclient/10205/basiclite-10.2.0.5.0-linux.zip
  2. Unzip both to /opt/lampp/var/oracle
  3. Tell XAMPP where to look for the Oracle client:
    sudo /opt/lampp/lampp oci8
  4. Give the following path:
    /opt/lampp/var/oracle/instantclient_10_2
  5. Restart Apache:
    sudo /opt/lampp/lampp restartapache


You should now be able to make PHP calls to Oracle functions.
