The ILS connection issue is resolved. I’m not quite sure how I did it. I installed both 10g and 11g extensions, based on an instantclient oracle article I changed my Instant Client from 11.1x to v11.2. The Voyager.ini is as follows:

 

host        = endeavor.molloy.edu

port        = 1521

service     = VGER

user        = sameasiteverwas

password    = sameasiteverwas

database    = sameasiteverwas

pwebrecon   = http://endeavor.molloy.edu/vwebv

 

connect_with_sid = true

 

Let the games begin.

Thank you Benjamin for the config and thanks to others that have replied off line. I have been given two different working configurations but mine is still not connecting. I’ve opened an incident with ExL to check on port 1521. It would be helpful though if I could understand some more specifics for what has worked for other Windows / Voyager users on VuFind 2.

 

1.       What version of the Oracle Instantclient for windows are you using http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/topics/winsoft-085727.html

2.       Which php extensions did you enable 10g? 11g both?

3.       What was the environmental variable? ORACLE_HOME – or something else.

Do you have the oracle instant client installed? http://vufind.org/wiki/installing_the_php_oci_driver_for_oracle?s[]=voyager#windows

 

Is the firewall on the Linux server open to VuFind? Check to see if iptables allows external access to port 1521.

 

We have a working Voyager 8.2 with the following (translated) configuration:

 

host        = endeavor.molloy.edu

port        = 1521

service     = VGER.endeavor.molloy.edu

user        = sameasiteverwas

password    = sameasiteverwas

database    = sameasiteverwas

pwebrecon   = http://endeavor.molloy.edu/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi

 

connect_with_sid = false

 

Hope that helps,
