I installed the oci driver and was able to use oracle as the database after reading from this link:
$options['host'] = '192.168.3.78:1521'; $options['username'] = 'bdesws_usr'; $options['password'] = 'abc123'; $options['schema'] = 'bdesws_usr'; $options['service_name'] = 'orcl.bdes'; $db = new JDatabaseDriverOracle($options);
However, this error occurs:
ORA-12545: Connect failed because target host or object does not exist
the host actually exists because I am using the host '192.168.3.78' and also the port '1521' in connecting to Sql Developer.
