Debian Jessie compiling PHP with OCI8 & PDO OCI

First we need to grab instant client from oracle..
Basic and Devel RPM packages is enough.

Before we install PHP we need to install prerequisites.

sudo apt-get install gcc libbz2-dev libpng12-dev libc-client2007e-dev libmcrypt-dev libxml2-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev libxslt1-dev libaio1 apache2-dev alien

Turn rpm packages to debian packages with alien.

sudo alien -d oracle-instantclient12.1-basic-
sudo alien -d oracle-instantclient12.1-devel-

Install instant client packages we freshly converted.

sudo dpkg -i oracle-instantclient12.1-basic_12.
sudo dpkg -i oracle-instantclient12.1-devel_12.

Download latest php source from; for example;


tar -jxvf php-5.6.19.tar.bz2

cd php-5.6.19

export paths to system;

export PATH=/usr/lib/oracle/12.1/client64/bin:$PATH
export ORACLE_HOME=/usr/lib/oracle/12.1/client64/
export C_INCLUDE_PATH=/usr/include/oracle/12.1/client64/

now we configure to generate make files;

./configure --with-pdo-oci --with-oci8 --with-pdo-oci --with-apxs2=/usr/bin/apxs2 --with-kerberos --with-mysql --with-pdo-mysql --with-bz2 --with-curl --with-gd --with-imap --with-imap-ssl --enable-mbstring --with-mcrypt --with-openssl --enable-zip --with-zlib --disable-phar

(if you need phar, delete last option).

make & install

sudo make install

configuration step;

sudo ldconfig

# Create openvas certificates:

sudo openvas-scapdata-sync#CERT feed:
sudo openvas-certdata-sync# Generate client certificates:
sudo openvas-mkcert-client -n -i

# Signature checking of NVTs:

sudo apt-get install gnupg
sudo gpg --homedir=/usr/local/etc/openvas/gnupg --gen-key
sudo gpg --homedir=/usr/local/etc/openvas/gnupg --import OpenVAS_TI.asc
sudo gpg --homedir=/usr/local/etc/openvas/gnupg --lsign-key 48DB4530

to help generate a lot of random bytes on another shell:

sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/tmp/500m.tmp bs=500M count=5

or install haveged deamon:

sudo apt-get install haveged

# enable sign check:

echo "nasl_no_signature_check = no" >> /usr/local/etc/openvas/openvassd.conf

#Update portnames:

openvas-portnames-update service-names-port-numbers.xml
rm service-names-port-numbers.xml

# Create admin password:

sudo openvasmd --create-user=adminuser --role=Admin

write down the password

# Set passwd policy
sudo vim /usr/local/etc/openvas/pwpolicy.conf

# install nmap 5.51:

wget &&
tar xvf nmap-5.51.6.tgz &&
cd nmap-5.51.6 &&
./configure &&
make &&
make install

# Start OpenVAS Scanner
sudo openvassd

# Initialize the Database
sudo openvasmd --rebuild --progress

# Launch OpenVAS Scanner as root

# Launch OpenVAS Manager daemon

# Launch OpenVAS Greenbone Security Assistant
