local tnsnames file


Recommended Posts

I have created a tnsnames.ora file in my local directory however I am not sure it is being used.

I have also add the variables tns_admin to  .bash_profile

When I try to run the php script I get ORA-12154: TNS:could not resolve the connect identifier specified

 

How should I go about troubleshooting this?

 

If I modify value for TNS_ADMIN to a path that doesn't exist the 12154 error does not change. Does this mean it is not reading the .bash_profile file and my local copy of tnsnames.ora?

 

Thanks,

If you are running php as say user apache... then the apache user needs to have the appropriate environment variables setup so that it can connect to oracle.  When a script is running it is running as the webserver.

Thanks. I can connect to our oracle dev server with the script so I think apache has the necessary permissions. I'm trying to now connect to the production database server. This requires a local tnsnames.ora file however I can't tell if the script is even trying to use this file. It's in the same directory as the php script so I assume it is.
