Zend Server Installation

with 12 comments

After posting Zend Core for Oracle to support the blog post, I figured that it would be more important to post the new Zend Server Community Edition. Basically, Zend Core for Oracle is deprecated and frozen at PHP 5.2.5. Zend Server is currently at 5.2.9 and shortly at 5.3.0, which is current release.

These are the instructions for installing Zend Server Community Edition. There’s a pre-requisite that you install Java on your computer. It requires the jvm.dll library, which is covered in the instructions.

You can download the Java JRE or JDK and install it first. Then, you can go to Zend Corporation and download the Zend Server Community Edition.

Hope this helps you anticpate the installation.

  3. Thanx. It cleared up some uncertainty I had with regards to choosing the correct JVM/JRE path.

  4. I am having trouble connecting to MySQL, I removed the “i” in the line, ” $c = @mysqli_connect(“localhost”, “student”, “student”, “sampledb”);” directly after @mysql to try to connect and it did not work, I placed it back in and it still couldn’t work, I keep receiving the “sorry…” Does the fact I connect on a different port than 3306 have any impact on the code?

  5. If you’ve configured a different port number, you must provide a fifth parameter like this:

    if (!$c = @mysqli_connect(HOSTNAME,USERNAME,PASSWORD,DATABASE,"3307")) {

    The default port is 3306, anything else must be explicitly provided in the call. You can read more about it here.

  6. I am having trouble when we have multiple address in the tns string as shown below. Can I have some tips how to create connect to db with load_balancing enabled in tns string.
    $m_dbName = ‘
    oci_connect($m_dbUser,$m_dbPass, $m_dbName);

  7. I am using port 81 (port 80 is already used by heaven knows what), and I connect just fine by using localhost:81/fileNamePath.php just as a suggestion for those who cannot use the default port 80 on their computers.

  8. Great help to use “$tns” when connecting (especially after reinstalling Oracle) I can add that you can find HOST name in SQL*Plus:

    SQL> SET serveroutput ON
    3 END;
    4 /


    I found the PORT in portlist.ini Enterprise Manager Agent Port (orcl, i.e. SERVICE NAME) = 18xx

  9. Previous comment was possibly premature. It does not give an error message, but no connection confirmation either.

  10. Hello,
    When I try to load my index.php with oci_connect there is an error: “Encountered a problem CGI / FastCGI, and needs to close.”. The signature of error:

    szAppName : php-cgi.exe szAppVer : szModName : OraOCIICUS11.dll
    szModVer : offset : 000a8c32

    What does it mean? How can I fix it?
