[ms4w-users] [UNCLASSIFIED]Problem connecting to Oracle Spatial

Hi Damien,

have made correct settings in the tnsnames.ora (alias, port, etc.) and in the sqlnet.ora and did they lie in your /oralce/admin/network directory? the second hint would be to play with the service name in the CONNECTION objet of your mapfile. Try to take the exact expression as the alias in the tnsnames.ora. third I would also copy the \ms4w\gdalplugins\ignored\OCI.dll to \ms4w\gdalplugins\ otherwise you could not communicate via OCI. Try this. In my case (and I am using exactly the same components) everything works fine. Good luck.



P.S. the settings in the httpd.conf of apache are not necessary in my case.
