ora_logon -- Open an Oracle connection


resource ora_logon ( string user, string password )

Establishes a connection between PHP and an Oracle database with the given username user and password password.

Connections can be made using SQL*Net by supplying the TNS name to user like this:

$conn = Ora_Logon("user@TNSNAME", "pass");

If you have character data with non-ASCII characters, you should make sure that NLS_LANG is set in your environment. For server modules, you should set it in the server's environment before starting the server.

Returns a connection index on success, or FALSE on failure. Details about the error can be retrieved using the ora_error() and ora_errorcode() functions.
