Attempting to create an external script that allows me to query some things in Drupal. I was hoping to be able to use my external databases I have defined in the settings of my site to query some of their tables. As one of the databses is Oracle based I have the http://drupal.org/project/oracle module installed.

The following is a PHP script outside of PHP but on the same server (different host):

$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] = 'www.example.com';


//require the bootstrap include
require_once DRUPAL_ROOT.'./includes/bootstrap.inc';
$db1 = Database::getConnection('oracle','external');
$sql = "SELECT * from accounts";
$result = $db1->query($sql);
$accounts = $result->fetchObject();

This code errors with:

PDOException: could not find driver in main() 

The same code (just the Database::getConnection down) running from within a Drupal page works fine. What can I do to make this code execute externally?
