Oracle Database 18.3.0 is available on Linux since July 23, 2018. And I wanted to quickly sneak into the Oracle Database 18.3.0 installation on premises. I did blog about the Oracle 18c installation a few weeks ago but this was a plain 18.1.0. This time I install the 18.3.0 on-prem edition for Linux.
Oracle Database 18.3.0 installation on premises
Are the any differences between an 18.1.0 and the 18.3.0 installation? No, there aren’t any (at least not anything I recognized). The most important thing: you must unzip the downloaded file into your future destination directory.
In my case I unzip:
mkdir /u01/app/oracle/product/18 cd /u01/app/oracle/product/18 unzip /media/sf_TEAM/LINUX.X64_180000_db_home.zip
Then call the install script:
This short video demonstrates the installation process:
And finally run root.sh:
su root passwd: oracle cd /u01/app/oracle/product/18 ./root.sh exit
One addition: If you wonder about the new environment variables
ORACLE_BASE_CONFIG: Those are used to the Read-Only Home feature since Oracle 18c. Find more information in MOS Note:2409465.1 (Oracle 18c – Configuring Read Only OracleHome / DBCA / Patching / Upgrade).
