To connect Oracle database to Laravel, you can follow these steps:

  1. Install the necessary Oracle driver for the PHP version you are using. You can use the OCI8 extension, which is recommended for Oracle connections in PHP. It can be installed via PECL or by following the instructions on the Oracle website.
  2. Update your Laravel project's database configuration file located at "config/database.php". Add a new Oracle connection configuration, including the username, password, host, port, and database name.
  3. In the same configuration file, set the default database connection to the Oracle connection you just added.
  4. Create a new migration to create the necessary database tables or use an existing Oracle database schema.
  5. Use Laravel's Eloquent ORM to interact with the Oracle database. Define models and relationships as needed for your application.
  6. Test the Oracle database connection by running PHP artisan commands, seeding data, or querying the database using Laravel methods.


By following these steps, you should be able to successfully connect Oracle to Laravel and start developing your application using Laravel's powerful features and functionalities.
