Mediawiki supports Oracle and I'm trying to configure it in the installer.
The installers says you can use EZConnect...something like:
or since the installer has fields elsewhere for user/pass
The installer includes a link to the EZConnect docs: http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/network.112/e10836/naming.htm.
All the examples in that doc include a forward slash. But every combination I've tried results in an error like this:
Invalid database TNS "sever.example.com/service_name". Use only ASCII letters (a-z, A-Z), numbers (0-9), underscores (_) and dots (.).
I can't find any examples of EZConnect that don't include a forward slash.
That error is from Mediawiki, not Oracle. I'm tailing the listener log and there is no connection made - Medaiwiki is returning an error without trying to connect.
I'm using php OCI8 with the Oracle instant client. I don't have a tnsnames.ora setup for this client - which is kind of the point of EZConnect. I did write a test php script that connects via oci_connect just fine.
Has anyone configured Mediawiki to use Oracle with EZConnect? If so, what did you use in the installer?
