I finally got around to creating a blog page that shows you how to install Zend Core for Oracle, verify the installation of PHP, your connection to an Oracle XE database with PHP, and your connection to a MySQL database with PHP.
It’s using the folding concepts I’ve adopted in the blog. One section unfolds to display screen shots for the installation of Zend Core for Oracle. Another section shows you how to confirm your PHP and Apache installation. Two other sections show you how to confirm your connection to an Oracle or MySQL database.
I apologize to those who don’t like to click through to another page, but it was a long page with 20+ images. Hope it helps a few folks, I know it’ll help my students.
