I have downloaded XAMPP for Linux. Have installed it. It works fine. But I have problem with oci8 extension. I have downloaded oracle instant client for linux and extracted it to
/opt/lampp/lib. Then I called
/opt/lampp/lampp oci8 when it promted for instant client directory I entered
/opt/lampp/lib but it gives me this error:
Can't find libclntsh.so. Sorry.
Even if that file is in that directory it continues giving me that error. Can anyone guide me with right installation?
P.S: I have no installed Oracle database server on my local machine. I would like to use it for remote connection.
