  • Here is the process to work with Word Press using Oracle DB.

    this function to make a connection, do a query and show the results (example uses the Resources schema that comes with Oracle Express):

    function MyOracleConnection ()
    $conn = oci_connect('hr', 'tester', 'localhost/XE');
    if (!$conn) {
        $e = oci_error();
        trigger_error(htmlentities($e['message'], ENT_QUOTES), E_USER_ERROR);
             else     {
             echo '<p>Congrats: Oracle meets WordPress!</p>';
    // Prepare the statement
    $stid = oci_parse($conn, 'SELECT * FROM departments');
    if (!$stid) {
        $e = oci_error($conn);
        trigger_error(htmlentities($e['message'], ENT_QUOTES), E_USER_ERROR);
    // Perform the logic of the query
    $r = oci_execute($stid);
    if (!$r) {
        $e = oci_error($stid);
        trigger_error(htmlentities($e['message'], ENT_QUOTES), E_USER_ERROR);
    // Fetch the results of the query
    print "<table border='1'>\n";
    while ($row = oci_fetch_array($stid, OCI_ASSOC+OCI_RETURN_NULLS)) {
        print "<tr>\n";
        foreach ($row as $item) {
           print "    <td>" . ($item !== null ? htmlentities($item, ENT_QUOTES) : " ") . "</td>\n";
        print "</tr>\n";
    print "</table>\n";

    You can then use this function in your WordPress template to do the magic.
