Apache 1.3.9 with mod_auth_oracle and php4.0b2 compiled with oci8. oci8 becomes unable to contact the database once mod_auth_oracle has authenticated a user. 

I thought this may be a bizarre problem to do with both modules accessing  the oracle shared libraries, so I tried folding the mod_auth_oracle code into mod_php4.c, but the same thing happens running this revised lib.

Does anyone have any ideas or similar experiences?

My configuration line:
--enable-sysvshm --enable-sysvsem --with-apxs=/usr/sbin/apxs --with-oci8 --with-ttf --with-gd --with-config-file-path=/etc/httpd.

I also tried upgrading to 4.0b3, but the new build does not link the oci8 libraries correctly, complaining about missing shared versions of psa, nlsrtl3 and core4 libraries.

I have since got beta3 to build - it displays the same behaviour. 

I have also reproduced this on a Sun SPARC/SunOS 5.7 system.

Both the Linux and Sun systems run Oracle 8.0.5.

Have contacted user to see if problem still occurs with latest release of PHP.

User switched to a different oracle authentication module.  Problem disappeared after this.

I do not know if the developers will want to pursue the bug beyond this...

In any case, here is the user's message.

" To be honest, I believed the problem to be related to mixing old-style (oracle 7) calls in the mod_auth_oracle module with the newer oci8 interface. I have since found a different oracle authentication module, by Ben Reser ( which works fine both on Linux and Solaris.

I have therefore abandoned Serg Oskin's module in favour of Ben's."

Ancient. And problem solved.
