Oracle 10g connection

QuestionsOracle 10g connection
Thales Pereira asked 11 years ago


After setting up with success tests with mysql and postgresq, i'm having some difficulties to set up a oracle 10g connection.

excluding the queries, the config i have at moment is:

$db_conf["type"] = "oci8"; // mysql,oci8(for oracle),mssql,postgres,sybase
$db_conf["server"] = "localhost:1521";
$db_conf["user"] = "adm";
$db_conf["password"] = "somepass";
$db_conf["database"] = "TESTDB";

error received:

Couldn't execute query. ORA-12514: TNS:listener does not currently know of service requested in connect descriptor – SELECT * FROM ( SELECT rownum rnum,a.* FROM (SELECT ENV,ISERVER from CMTOOLS_ISERVERS WHERE 1=1) a ) WHERE rnum BETWEEN 0 AND 1

Hi Thales,

This is perhaps something related to database config. See following urls.
Let me know if you have checked following recommendations.

May error in $db_conf["database"] = "TESTDB";
Database mean oracle service or SID, if use Oracle Express is XE.

Basic and simple.

i just had to remove the line $db_conf["server"] = $DB_HOST,

Maybe it have some conflict.

Its working now =)
