I wanted to know if anyone ever tried to connect to a remote oracle database using dreamhost.
I also wanted to know if it was possible (oci dll's activated, etc).
sigh I wonder why it is so difficult to find a direct answer on this topic.
Honestly, you're the first person I can recall having asked for Oracle support.
The OCI8 library for PHP requires Oracle client libraries, which we do not have installed, as we do not use or provide Oracle databases on our hosting platform. I'm not certain whether it would be possible for you to install these yourself.
