i have apache + php running on debian with instantclient of oracle installed and the whole retrieves data from an oracle db.
From a web page, characters such as '' (alt +130) when i pass from a php page to the database, the is converted to another form such as the default character '?' . further conversion is done when i read the data from the oracle DB to the php page.
I had found that this can be due to 7 or 8 bits of the characterset used in case they are different from the different envs. I tried several methods such as putting utf-8 for the apache php unix env.. it did not work. the oracle NLS_Charset is in iso-8859-1, so i tried to set apache php unix env to this, again this does not work...
The '' if sent from apache + php (easyphp) installed on WINDOWS does pass the correct value to the DB and vice versa.
If you have something on that, it might be helpful to me.
