I have successfully set up PHP with the easyphp.exe. This is not my first time to install PHP CGI on a Windows 98 System. But this is the first time I want to connect with the Oracle8i. So I comment out the extension=php_oci8.dll.

And the error message shows like this :

PHP Warning:  Unable to load dynamic library 'c:\php\php_oci8.dll' -  One of the
library files needed to run the application cannot be found.

After several times of testing, I found the not only yhe php_oci8.dll cannot be load, php_openssl.dll and php_oracle.dll also can't load. And the rest of *.dll are loaded well.

I suspect whether is this a differnece between a Windows98 and a Windows NT system? So that some people can successfully load the oracle dll?

for oci/oracle you'll have to install the oracle client libaries.
for openssl you'll need to copy libeay32.dll & ssleay32.dll into your windows/syste, winnt/system32 folder.
afaik this is all mentioned in install.txt
to look on which external dlls an exe or an dll is relying you can use the dependency walker -
