Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: OpenACS with Oracle 9i bootstrapping error

Posted by Andrew Piskorski on
Nitish, you never said where you at first set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH and ORACLE_HOME environment variables. It sounds like you did not have them set anywhere that the AOLserver user could see on startup, and that you then fixed that by putting them into your nsd-oracle script. That's fine, problem solved.

But even better would be to put those settings in a system-wide shell script and then source it as needed. For more info, see my 8i install notes and search forward for the "Oracle environment variables:" section. Similar info is also here in the Forums, for Oracle in Dec. 2002, and for PostgreSQL in Sept. 2003.
