Bug #46623 phpinfo() doesn't show compile time home with phpize install
Submitted: 2008-11-19 20:09 UTC Modified: 2009-03-11 17:06 UTC
From: Assigned: sixd
Status: Closed Package: OCI8 related
PHP Version: 5.3.0alpha2 OS: Linux
Private report: No CVE-ID:
 [2008-11-19 20:09 UTC]
If OCI8 is installed from PECL, then phpinfo() doesn't show anything for the "Compile-time ORACLE_HOME" or "Libraries Used" field.  

There is no runtime impact on scripts because these are strings constructed at build time,

The incorrect macros values are:

The macros are defined as empty strings in the pre-existing /usr/include/php/main/build-def.h. Nothing in phpize/configure overrides them.

The PHP_OCI8_VERSION value is correct since it is overridden in php_oci8.h (after Steph's PECL versioning project)

Potential solution is to change config.m4 and add these lines at the
end of the ORACEL_HOME and Instant Client blocks:


Then change oci8.c to use the new macros:

	php_info_print_table_row(2, "Compile-time ORACLE_HOME", PHP_OCI8_DEF_DIR);
	php_info_print_table_row(2, "Libraries Used", PHP_OCI8_DEF_SHARED_LIBADD);

Reproduce code:
tar -zxf oci8-1.3.4.tgz
cd oci8-1.3.4
phpize && ./configure --with-oci8=shared,$ORACLE_HOME && make install
[Add to php.ini]
php -i |grep ORACLE_HOME

Expected result:
phpinfo() should show:

Compile-time ORACLE_HOME => /home/oracle/app/oracle

Actual result:
phpinfo() shows:

Compile-time ORACLE_HOME =>
