We use the following function (in a "library" file we include with PHP at the top of a page) to parse and execute a query on an Oracle-database:

function ParseExec($conn, $curs, $query) {
	if (! $conn)
		ErrorClose("<BR><BR><B>ERROR:</B> GEEN VERBINDING!!!");

	if (ora_Parse($curs, $query, 0) == -1)
		ErrorClose("<BR><BR><B>ERROR:</B> SQL parse error");

	// Bewaar de evt. parse error
	$orcl_error = ora_Error($curs);

	if (! ora_Exec($curs)) {
		if (strstr($orcl_error, "ORA-00000")) $orcl_error = ora_Error($curs);
		$fout  = "<BR><BR><B>ERROR:</B> Execute error\n\n";
		$fout .= "<BR><BR><B>QUERY:</B> " . $query . "\n\n";
		$fout .= "<BR><BR><B>ORACLE ERROR:</B> " . $orcl_error . "\n\n";
		if ($conn && ! ora_RollBack($conn))
			$fout .= "<BR><BR><B>ERROR:</B> Could not rollback\n\n";

If we use this function with a database on the same machine (Ora_Logon without TNSNAME), there is no problem. If we are connected to a remote database (Ora_Logon with a TNSNAME) the Ora_Error statement -- $orcl_error = ora_Error($curs); -- causes the Ora_Exec statement to give the following error message (mind the OPARSE !):

ORA-03114: not connected to ORACLE -- while processing OCI function OPARSE

If we comment out the Ora_Error statement, the problem does not occur.

I have not checked whether this problem also exists with PHP 3.0.14. If it does not, sorry for the inconvenience and I would appreciate it very much if you would tell me.

This is our configure line:

./configure --with-apache=/usr/src/apache --with-gd=/usr/src/gd --with-oracle=/u01/app/oracle/product/8.0.5 --with-pgsql --with-dbase=yes --with-config-file-path=/usr/local/apache/conf --enable-debug=no --enable-track-vars=yes --enable-magic-quotes=yes
