PHP 5.6

I tried to brew install php56 --with-httpd --with-pdo-oci with $ORACLE_HOME set to "/usr/local/instantclient/instantclient_12_2" but I get the message

Error: Environmental variable ORACLE_HOME must be set to use --with-pdo-oci option.

I also set $ORACLE_HOME in my .bash_profile in case it uses a new environment but that didn't help. How can I get it to be able to build with pdo-oci?

PHP 7.2

I also tried to brew install php72 --with-httpd --with-pdo-oci and ran into the issue with no options though I built it last week apparently before the update with --with-httpd and it worked fine. Is pdo-oci also built by default?

Context and Logs

Parameter Value
macOS version: 10.3.3

Are you sure you have ORACLE_HOME set so that brew can access it? As an environment variable? What happens when you do echo $ORACLE_HOME?

As for php@7.2 httpd is indeed included by default but pdo-oci is not. You can still install it through pecl/pear though which is included now.

Thanks for the reply. Here's what I get from echo $ORACLE_HOME
