"call to undefined function oci_connect, php_oci8_12c.dll, windows 8.1, php5.6.6" Answer’s

Edit: Hmm. Trying this on Windows 8 appears to generate the same error as you specified. I'm currently investigating...

My mistake (I had enabled the wrong extension_dir line). It works in Win8 just as documented below.


The following steps should be all you need to get OCI working with PHP (I've just verified this on a freshly installed Windows 2008 R2 Standard x64 virtual machine):

  • Download and extract PHP (I used C:php from php-5.6.7-nts-Win32-VC11-x86.zip).
  • Download and extract InstantClient (I used C:instantclient_12_1 from instantclient-basic-nt-12.1.0.2.0.zip).
  • Add the above paths to the system path.
  • Copy c:phpphp.ini-production to c:phpphp.ini.
  • in php.ini:
    • enabled line extension_dir = "ext".
    • enabled line extension=php_oci8_12c.dll.
  • Install Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Runtime (x86). This is needed for the OCI8 extension.
  • Install Microsoft Visual C++ 2012 Runtime (x86). This is needed for PHP.

At this point running php --ri oci8 in a command prompt shows me the following output:

C:>php --ri oci8

oci8

OCI8 Support => enabled
OCI8 DTrace Support => disabled
OCI8 Version => 2.0.9

oci8.old_oci_close_semantics => Off => Off
oci8.connection_class => no value => no value
oci8.events => Off => Off

And checking for the oci_connect function:

C:>php -r "var_dump(function_exists('oci_connect'));"
bool(true)
