Hi everybody,

Presently, our developmental website runs in IIS4 in Windows NT4. We connect to a oracle8i server in Windows NT using ASP. We use Microsoft ODBC and Oracle SQL8Plus client.

Now we want to move to our main webserver running Apache 1.3.9 in Silicon graphics IRIX 6.5 server. I want to use PHP 4 to connect the same oracle server in Windows NT. I couldnt get information about Oracle SQL8Plus client service software for IRIX (They have for solaris, HPUX and even AIX but not for IRIX).

I want to know do we need sql8plus client for coonecting Apache with Oracle server using PHP.? Can we connect without Oracle client.? If anybody tried out before, I would be thankful if they share it with me.
