Manual:PHP unit testing/Oracle

MediaWiki no longer supports using Oracle or Microsoft SQL Server as of version 1.34 .



Works with r101976 (1.19a) but is painfully slow because it recreates the schema for each test. A workaround for this issue is to run a short Database test once (so it creates the testing schema) and then use --reuse-db switch that will only clear the schema without recreating it.

Tested against Oracle 11g SE.
