We’ve got an issue here (related to connecting to the MIS systems in our college so that we can have the data which they contain displayed in Moodle), and I wanted to see if anyone might have any tips on how we can resolve it.
We’re currently running Moodle 1.9.8+ (with a MySQL 5.051 server) in a Linux environment with PHP 5.2.6.
However, we don’t seem to be able to connect to the Oracle 9 database as our PHP build is missing the Oci8 extension and the ADOdb libraries ( - the PHP elements originally came in a ‘bundle’ which didn’t include these two).
I wanted to ask if anyone has any tips or suggestions on how we might manage to install the Oci8 extension and the ADOdb libraries without having to begin a new PHP build.
The only solution we can think of beyond that is to make a new build of PHP (perhaps on a Windows server) which includes these elements.
I’d really appreciate any comments: thanks!
