OCI8 DLLs built with 10g, 11g and 12c are available in PECL. Use the appropriate one for your version of Oracle client libraries.

You are correct. The files php_oci8.dll and php_oci8_11g.dll were left over from the 5.5.20 installation. The only version that came with 5.6.4 was php_oci8_12c.dll

Not sure where you get your bin distribution then (or that's just that "overwrite" issue again). In the zips prom windows.php.net like http://windows.php.net/downloads/releases/php-5.6.4-nts-Win32-VC11-x86.zip there's only 12c one. But you also can check what PHP version it was compiled with by right clicking the dll => properties => details.

The 5.6.4 zip file has three versions of the oci8 dll - php_oci8.dll, php_oci8_11g.dll and php_oci8_12c.dll all with the same file creation date. I am currently using Oracle 11g.

If I try to use php_oci8_12c.dll I get the message "PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library 'F:/php5/ext\php_oci8_12c.dll' - The specified procedure could not be found.

  in Unknown on line 0"

Please note that PHP 5.6 doesn't deliver php_oci8_11g.dll anymore, the mistake is that you try to load an ext DLL from PHP 5.5 into 5.6. You probably should be using php_oci8_12c.dll delivered with 5.6 instead. But whether it works with 11g then, probably Chris can answer then.
