We're building a Debian server to host a website which is built on PHP. It connects to an Oracle database. I need to connect the PHP to the Oracle database using oci8. However, some of the steps I've seen online require the use of oracle-xe-client package. I cannot find this package at the moment. Any help or advice about the process is appreciated!
Otherwise, both PDO and ODBC have drivers for Oracle, albeit the ones for PDO are experimental.
