Connecting to external oracle DB

Hello,

 

I have a php instance running in my shared hosting. However, when I try to use oci8 to connect to an oracle database, I run into problems. I can connect to it from my local computer, but not from my shared hosting. I went to cpanel and added the host under external databases, but if I understand correctly it only allows the mysql port. I can't change it to allow the oracle port (1521).

Considering that when I connect via ssh, I can't even do a ping (due to shared hosting restrictions), is it possible that the php instance running isn't allowed to connect to external databases?

Or that the connection is being blocked?

 

Any help appreciated.
