(You need to register an oracle account first)
rpm -ivh oracle-instantclient11.2-basic-
rpm -ivh oracle-instantclient11.2-devel-

2. Downlaod Extension for Oracle Database from PECL and install
wget http://pecl.php.net/get/oci8-1.4.3.tgz
pecl install oci8-1.4.3.tgz

3. Move oci8.so to extension_dir (see your php.ini)
cp /usr/local/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20060613/oci8.so /usr/lib64/php/modules

4. add extension=oci8.so to php.ini
echo extension=oci8.so >> /usr/local/etc/php.ini

Verifying the oci8 extension is work
# php -i | grep OCI
OCI8 Support => enabled

Easy Connect Example:
$conn = oci_connect('user', 'password', '//');
// Use lsnrctl services in Oracle to list existing service name
$stid = oci_parse($conn, "select id from table");
oci_execute($stid, OCI_DEFAULT);
while ($arr = oci_fetch_array($stid, OCI_ASSOC)) {
echo "$arr[id].\n";
