Oracle 8 is pretty obsolete now. Now, the only options for getting more
up to date support are
-- persuading Oracle to release eg. an Oracle Instant Client package
-- somehow being able to use the Linux client software under
I've no idea what Oracle's response to the first option would be, but I
suspect their response might well be that they won't get enough return
to justify the cost of producing a FreeBSD native client.
The second option looks pretty difficult to me -- making a PHP shared
object that links to a Linux shlib but that is itself linked into
various PHP applications.
The future looks Postgresql shaped to me.
