PHP developers can access and view the Oracle database with the help of an Apache server and make changes in the Oracle database regarding tablespaces, tables, and indexes.
Key Concept

PHP is a server-side scripted programming language designed and developed to run server programs.

Most SAP environments involve a variety of non-SAP technologies. Sometimes you need to retrieve data to use in your SAP system, but to do so you have to connect a number of systems. For example, a common database provider is Oracle, and a common language used in these environments is PHP. Sometimes PHP developers need to access the Oracle database – for example, due to maintenance of the Oracle database on standard and custom tablespaces, tables, and indexes. To do this, however, you need to establish a connection with the Oracle database using an Apache server, a widely used Web server. I’ll show you how to set up this connection so you can solve this technical challenge.
