When I use php in CGI mode any script can't connect to the Oracle DB throught the OCILogon call.
When I switch to the ISAPI mode these scripts work OK.
the sample script:
 if (! $dbconn=OCILogon($dbuser,$dbpass,$dbhost)) 
      print("Cannot connect to oracle db '$dbhost' as user '$dbuser'");
oracle reports:
ORA-12154: TNS:could not resolve service name in C:\InetPub\wwwroot\test.php4 on line 5

Just wondering if you have all the necessary environment
variables set? Check the manual page

php manual suggests to set such enviroment variables:
ORACLE_HOME - seems to be path to a directory where an ORACLE product is. Am I right ?
I've tried to set it as 
and then run php
C:\php4\php.exe c:\InetPub\wwwroot\test.php4
and I've got the same TNS-12154 error :-(
Could you possibly tell, what's is going wrong ?
P.S. I don't have any problems with php3 and Oracle on the same machine.
ORACLE_SID - seems to be SID identifier, TNSNAMES.ORA already has got SID defined for my TNS alias.
LD_PRELOAD - this variable seems to has meaning only for U*NIX systems
LD_LIBRARY_PATH - this variable seems to has meaning only for U*NIX systems
I can't guess what above two variables should contain on Win32 system. Could you possibly enlight me in this issue?
NLS_LANG,ORA_NLS33 - these variables seem to contain NLS settings, so windows registry has it
