[nycphp-talk] Using PHP on Linux with Oracle

I use php as a dynamic module in apache, in version previous to 4.3 to 
compile the apache module in the configure command.. you needed to 
include --with-apxs=/usr/sbin/apxs if you did not include that, i 
believe just the binary would be compiled.. meaning your newly compiled 
php with the oracle library might only be in /usr/local/bin/php and not 
in /usr/local/apache (or where ever the module ends up.. )

I only have experience with dynamically loading the php module, not 
compiling the php module into apache.. But if you can run the oracle 
extension from the command line, and not with apache.. it might have 
something to do with not compiling a new apache module only the binary..
