We’re starting the new year with a major PHP upgrade. The PHP 5.6.0 version has been updated to PHP 5.6.4, which features a few bug fixes. Also, we’ve installed the OCI8 extension for connecting to Oracle Database.
Customers can now connect to their Oracle databases using osi_connect. To do that, they’ll need to add “extension = oci8.so” to the php.ini file and to whitelist the server connection from the Outgoing Connections section of the Control Panel.
