Obviously, this has been successful for a number of people. I did finally get it installed on Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop 32bit, with much frustration. However, I never got it working on 64bit server.
Can someone point me to useful step-by-step instructions for getting a LAMP setup with PDO_OCI installed and working in Ubuntu Server? Preferably, I'd like to use 10.04 Lucid 64bit. If this is known to not work, or if a different version of Ubuntu Server is preferred, I'd like to know that too. I'm going to connect to an external Oracle server, so I don't need to know how to install the Oracle server stuff.
