Enabling Amazon RDS Oracle PDO

At Scriptcase, we have the following drivers available for connection to Oracle: Oracle 8.0.5 or Higher, Oracle PDO, Oracle ODBC and Oracle 8 . If you are using your own pre-configured environment, Oracle extensions must be enabled manually in PHP.

IMPORTANT: If you are using Scriptcase’s automatic installer, the extensions are already enabled in PHP, ready for connection. The procedure below is only for manual installations of Scriptcase.


Before proceeding with this documentation, check your PHP architecture. For drivers to be enabled correctly, files must be downloaded according to the architecture used.

  • In your Scriptcase, there is the file info.php, access it by the URL:, where you will find the information regarding the architecture in phpinfo().

NOTE: If you are using Scriptcase’s automatic installer, the PHP architecture will be the same as the one you downloaded. Download the Oracle instant client according to your PHP architecture.

PHP architecture

  • Architecture x86 = 32 bits
  • Architecture x64 = 64 bits

Below are listed the files required for Oracle drivers to be enabled. If you installed Scriptcase using the installer, it is not necessary to download Microsoft Visual C ++ 2017. For manual installations, you must download and install both versions of Microsoft Visual C ++ 2017 .

IMPORTANT: PHP 7.3 is compatible with Oracle Instant Client 11 or higher.
