In this fourth part of a five-part article series, we pick up where we left off from the last part, installing Oracle Database XE on a Linux platform. This article is excerpted from chapter 27 of the book Beginning PHP and Oracle: From Novice to Professional, written by W. Jason Gilmore and Bob Bryla (Apress; ISBN: 1590597702).

TOOLS YOU CAN USE

To begin the installation process, locate therpm file you downloaded in the previous section and run the rpm command as follows:

[root@phpxe tmp]# rpm -ivh oracle-xe-10.2.0.1-1.0.i386.rpm

--------------------------------------------
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
   1:oracle-xe ########################################### [100%]
Executing Post-install steps...

You must run '/etc/init.d/oracle-xe configure' as the root user to
configure the database.

[root@phpxe tmp]#

--------------------------------------------

As the output of this installation step implies, you need to run/etc/init.d/oracle-xe configurenext. The dialog in Listing 27-2 prompts you for the administrative interface port number, the Oracle listener port number, the password for theSYSandSYSTEMaccounts, and whether you want to start Oracle automatically when your workstation boots.

Listing 27-2.Oracle Database XE Installation Dialog on Linux

[root@phpxe tmp]# /etc/init.d/oracle-xe configure

--------------------------------------------

Oracle Database 10g Express Edition Configuration
-----------------------------------
This will configure on-boot properties of Oracle Database 10g Express
Edition.  The following questions will determine whether the database should
be starting upon system boot, the ports it will use, and the passwords that will be used for database accounts. Press <Enter> to accept the defaults.
Ctrl-C will abort.

Specify the HTTP port that will be used for Oracle Application Express [8080]:

Specify a port that will be used for the database listener [1521]:

Specify a password to be used for database accounts. Note that the same
password will be used for SYS and SYSTEM. Oracle recommends the use of different passwords for each database account. This can be done after
initial configuration: *********
Confirm the password: *********

Do you want Oracle Database 10g Express Edition to be started on boot (y/n) [y]:

Starting Oracle Net Listener...

Configuring Database...
Done
Starting Oracle Database 10g Express Edition Instance...Done
Installation Completed Successfully.
To access the Database Home Page go to http://127.0.0.1:8080/apex
[root@phpxe tmp]#

--------------------------------------------

In this example, you accept the defaults for port numbers and startup options. The installer starts the listener, configures the database, and starts the administrative Web interface service. To access the Oracle Database XE administrative interface, navigate to the URL you see at the end of the installation dialog:

http://127.0.0.1:8080/apex

You should see the Oracle Database XE administrative interface you saw in Chapter 25. If you are using Debian Linux, the previous steps are the same except that you initiate the installation process using the Debian package manager as follows:

dpkg -i oracle-xe-universal_10.2.0.1-1.0_i386.deb

Please check back next week for the conclusion to this article.
