    Your php needs to be configured with oci8 support. You should run the following command on php sources
    Code:
    ./configure --with-apxs2=/usr/local/apache/bin/apxs --with-oci8=$ORACLE_HOME
    and maybe other prefixes, for example --with-zlib, read ./configure --help to see the list of options available. Then compile and install php. I hope you've already added php module in httpd.conf and added php mime type also. Then you have to restart httpd
    Code:
    apachectl stop
    apachectl start
