        1. Manual Install from Github on Linux

These instructions are Ubuntu/Debian based

  • Download the Oracle Instant Client [here](http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/features/instant-client/index-097480.html).
    • Get both the basic client and the sdk (two files)
    • You will need to download the appropriate version for your version of Oracle (i.e Instant Client 11 goes with Oracle 11g server.)
    • You will also need an Oracle login for this (free registration.)
  • Extract the instant client basic zip file to your preferred location, such as /opt/instantclient_11_2
  • Extract the sdk zip to the same location. There should be a sdk folder inside the main instantclient_11_2 folder
  • Ensure that you have the php-pear and php5-dev packages installed on your system
    • $ sudo apt-get install php-pear php5-dev
  • Use PECL to install the oci8 so file.
    • $ sudo pecl install oci8
    • You will be asked for the type of install and location of library. Use instantclient and the location where you extracted the files above. ex: "instantclient,/opt/instantclient_11_2"
    • If the the install generates any errors it will fail you. You will need to troubleshoot based on the error reported.
  • Create a module file for your oci8 installation.
    • $ sudo touch /etc/php5/mods-available/oci8.ini
  • Edit the file you just created in your preferred text editor.
    • There is a single line in the file it looks like this:
    • extension=oci8.so
  • Enable the php extension
    • $ sudo php5enmod oci8
  • Restart your web service service
    • $ sudo service apache2 restart
      or
    • $ sudo service nginx restart
