Running Oracle on 64 bit AMD machine using Red Hat 3 ES.
The apache configuration step failed.
When i go the the apache directory and try starting apache i get:

[oracle@dwrep bin]$ id
uid=503(oracle) gid=503(oinstall) groups=503(oinstall),504(dba)
[oracle@dwrep bin]$ ./apachectl start
/u01/app/oracle/product/9.2.0/Apache/Apache/bin/httpd: error while loading share d libraries: libdb.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directo ry
./apachectl start: httpd could not be started
[oracle@dwrep bin]$ ./apachectl configtest
/u01/app/oracle/product/9.2.0/Apache/Apache/bin/httpd: error while loading shared libraries: libdb.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
[oracle@dwrep bin]$
[root@dwrep root]# find / -name libdb.so.2 -print
/usr/lib64/libdb.so.2

How do i get rid of this problem?

Why are you starting apache as user oracle?  Try Su'ing to root, and retry starting.

Hmmm - when you installed apache, did you specify that path to the libraries?  Is that library in your own path?

No and  no.  I did put it in the LD_LIBRARYPATH but not PATH.  I thought the PATH was for executables, but I'll try it in the morning.

Sorry, the library path, not the path -let me see if I can find the syntax for you.

Either add the following line into your /etd/ld.so.conf

/usr/lib64

and run ldconfig afterwards or export the path via LD_LIBRARY_PATH

running ldd $ORACLE_HOME/Apache/Apache/bin/httpd should return something like this (you will have the 64bit libraries)

[oracle@rhel bin]$ ldd httpd
        /etc/libcwait.so => /etc/libcwait.so (0xb75e7000)
        libdms2.so => /opt/oracle/10.1.0as/lib/libdms2.so (0xb75cf000)
        libpthread.so.0 => /lib/tls/libpthread.so.0 (0xb75b5000)
        libdb.so.2 => /usr/lib/libdb.so.2 (0xb75a6000)
        libnsl.so.1 => /lib/libnsl.so.1 (0xb7591000)
        libm.so.6 => /lib/tls/libm.so.6 (0xb756f000)
        libcrypt.so.1 => /lib/libcrypt.so.1 (0xb7541000)
        libdl.so.2 => /lib/libdl.so.2 (0xb753e000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/tls/libc.so.6 (0xb7407000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 => /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0xb75eb000)
[oracle@rhel bin]$

Sorry - it's taken me a bit of time to come back to you.

The changes should be made when running configure - use:

./configure --libdir=/usr/lib64

and then run:

make clean
make

Which directory should  i be in to run the ./configure.
I don't see any configure except for source files.

That's correct - you'll need to recompile apache to look for files in that directory.

(correction: that should read 'library files' not 'files')

But I don't find a configure executable.  There is no place that I see that I could enter ./configure unless I go into a
/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/gcc............  Then there are a bunch of configures.

How did you build Apache?

I did not build it.  Any Apache stuff was part of the .tar file from Oracle.  Probably is different from the actual Apache.

Hmmm- the problem is that your library is in a different directory than where it is expected to be.  That expectation is generally ruled by how it was compiled.

Did you try Kelosi's recommendation?  I suspect s/he meant /etc/ld.so.conf Instead of  /etd/ld.so.conf  if that helps.

Yes.  Since posting this Oracle has released a 64 bit 10g server  for linux and this was just installed yesterday.  In 10g the Apache is not included and is a seperate install which I will be doing shortly.
