Drupal Association members fund grants that make connections all over the world.
This module is used to connect to Oracle databases using Drupal's familiar database functions and classes, such as oci8_db_query(), oci8_db_query_range(), $query->execute(), $query->fetchAll(), etc. This module will not replace MySQL in Drupal, only allow access to Oracle databases on sites that do not have the PHP PDO Oracle drivers install due to its non-production ready drivers (http://www.php.net/manual/en/ref.pdo-oci.php).
This module wraps PHP's OCI8 functions (http://www.php.net/manual/en/book.oci8.php) with Drupal's Database, DatabaseConnection, and DatabaseStatement classes, see oci8.database.inc for more information about classes defined by this module.
Install module as usual in /sites/all/modules. Before enabling, you must define
at lease one database connection in settings.php as described below.
/** * Database connection settings for the oci8 module. These settings * mimic Drupal's main $databases variable. */ $conf['oci8'] = array( 'databases' => array( 'default' => array( 'default' => array( 'database' => 'DATABASE_NAME', 'username' => 'DATABASE_USER_NAME', 'password' => 'DATABASE_PASSWORD', 'hosts' => array('HOST_A', 'HOST_B'), 'port' => 'PORT_NUMBER', ), ), ), );
