I followed these directions here:

But can't seem to get it to work in wampserver....

Fatal error: Call to undefined function OCILogon() in C:\wamp\www\testoracle.php on line 5

Any help would greatly be appreciated...

First, you need to check on php extensions that php_oci8 is enabled or go to php.ini and delete the ';' before php_oci8.dll at "extensions"

I did manage to get to this step thanks...

However now as my data is loading, if it is more that a few lines I get an apache browser error....

Instead of the express oracle edition, I install the full deal, and now I get no data just the apache error...

Pop up error:
Apache HTTP Server has encountered a problem and needs to close.
We are sorry fo the inconvenience.

follow this forum:

and this is a sample of my connection string, connecting to Oracle Database Express Edition:
$db_conn = OCILogon( "hr", "hr", "//localhost:1521/XE"winking smiley;

Basically PHP reengineered the php_oci8.dll
So you just need to replace the .dll in the ext (extension) directory with the new one, which you can find here:
