oci_error

(PHP 5, PECL OCI8 >= 1.1.0)

oci_errorReturns the last error found

Description

array oci_error ([ resource $resource ] )

Returns the last error found.

The function should be called immediately after an error occurs. Errors are cleared by a successful statement.

Parameters

resource

For most errors, resource is the resource handle that was passed to the failing function call. For connection errors with oci_connect(), oci_new_connect() or oci_pconnect() do not pass resource.

Return Values

If no error is found, oci_error() returns FALSE. Otherwise, oci_error() returns the error information as an associative array.

oci_error() Array Description
Array key Type Description
code integer The Oracle error number.
message string The Oracle error text.
offset integer The byte position of an error in the SQL statement. If there was no statement, this is 0
sqltext string The SQL statement text. If there was no statement, this is an empty string.

Examples

Example #1 Displaying the Oracle error message after a connection error

<?php
$conn 
oci_connect("hr""welcome""localhost/XE");
if (!
$conn) {
    
$e oci_error();   // For oci_connect errors do not pass a handle
    
trigger_error(htmlentities($e['message']), E_USER_ERROR);
}
?>

Example #2 Displaying the Oracle error message after a parsing error

<?php
$stid 
oci_parse($conn"select ' from dual");  // note mismatched quote
if (!$stid) {
    
$e oci_error($conn);  // For oci_parse errors pass the connection handle
    
trigger_error(htmlentities($e['message']), E_USER_ERROR);
}
?>

Example #3 Displaying the Oracle error message, the problematic statement, and the position of the problem of an execution error

<?php
$stid 
oci_parse($conn"select does_not_exist from dual");
$r oci_execute($stid);
if (!
$r) {
    
$e oci_error($stid);  // For oci_execute errors pass the statement handle
    
print htmlentities($e['message']);
    print 
"\n<pre>\n";
    print 
htmlentities($e['sqltext']);
    
printf("\n%".($e['offset']+1)."s""^");
    print  
"\n</pre>\n";
}
?>

Please note that, unlike equivalent functions in other DB extensions, skipping the resource argument is not synonym for "just get last error".
