php with oci8 nightmare

Hi there!

I'm trying to get php to work with oci8, but my php instalation is 4.3.2 and someone installed it from the cd. My Oracle database is located on another server, but I coul install it on the same computer.

What do I do to install php-oci8 on my Red Hat ES 3 system?

I found one package, but it required php 4.3.9 and RedHat EL4, so... no good.

Any ideas?

I suggest simply rebuilding whatever version of PHP you want (probably PHP 4.x) from source. Just get a SRPM for whatever 4.x PHP release you desire and follow the instructions here.
