Quick Installation

composer require yajra/laravel-oci8:^8

Service Provider (Optional on Laravel 5.5+)

Once Composer has installed or updated your packages you need to register Laravel-OCI8. Open up config/app.php and find the providers key and add:


Configuration (OPTIONAL)

Finally you can optionally publish a configuration file by running the following Artisan command. If config file is not publish, the package will automatically use what is declared on your .env file database configuration.

php artisan vendor:publish --tag=oracle

This will copy the configuration file to config/oracle.php.

Note: For Laravel Lumen configuration, make sure you have a config/database.php file on your project and append the configuration below:

'oracle' => [
    'driver'        => 'oracle',
    'tns'           => env('DB_TNS', ''),
    'host'          => env('DB_HOST', ''),
    'port'          => env('DB_PORT', '1521'),
    'database'      => env('DB_DATABASE', ''),
    'username'      => env('DB_USERNAME', ''),
    'password'      => env('DB_PASSWORD', ''),
    'charset'       => env('DB_CHARSET', 'AL32UTF8'),
    'prefix'        => env('DB_PREFIX', ''),
    'prefix_schema' => env('DB_SCHEMA_PREFIX', ''),
    'edition'       => env('DB_EDITION', 'ora$base'),

If you need to connect with the service name instead of tns, you can use the configuration below:

'oracle' => [
    'driver' => 'oracle',
    'host' => '',
    'port' => '1521',
    'database' => 'xe',
    'service_name' => 'sid_alias',
    'username' => 'hr',
    'password' => 'hr',
    'charset' => '',
    'prefix' => '',

And run your laravel installation...

[Laravel 5.2++] Oracle User Provider

When using oracle, we may encounter a problem on authentication because oracle queries are case sensitive by default. By using this oracle user provider, we will now be able to avoid user issues when logging in and doing a forgot password failure because of case sensitive search.

To use, just update auth.php config and set the driver to oracle

'providers' => [
    'users' => [
        'driver' => 'oracle',
        'model' => App\User::class,
