Any one here know how to run OcCLE on a windows 2008 server?
I get this error:
fbclient.dll missing, cannot run occle.php

Runs fine on my windows 8 desktop.

I did the typical googling of "fbclient.dll", the references from php related links. e.g.

But searching on my own system, said DLL is not installed either. Is this message bogus?

Any help appreciated.
An alternative is to convince my company to chunk these old boxes and get a LAMP setup. I wish...  :)

This sounds like maybe you're running via the command line? (php occle.php). You can do that, but it's more normal to run direct out of the Admin Zone (Admin Zone > Tools > OcCLE).

The error likely relates to an enabled extension in php.ini that is missing a dll dependency, e.g. firebird as identified.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Never noticed that option in the tools menu, major cool that it is built in. Worked great, thanks Chris!
