I have installed the free version of Oracle (10G) onto my REHL 5 system. Everything installed without a hitch (other than having to increase my swap space). Then .... nothing.
I cannot connect to the web page http://127.0.0.1/apex
. So I looked around and I found this buried entry:
" With the production version of Oracle XE the default is to not allow remote access to the web server. This sometimes causes even local access to not work. To fix run the following as sys:
Access to the web server will now be enabled."
So now I want to log into sqlplus to run that command. After setting up ORACLE_HOME, ORACLE_SID AND ORACLE_BASE in my bash profile - because sqlplus will not start without these manual entries - I receive the following error message when loging into sqlplus:
SQL*Plus: Release 10.2.0.1.0 - Production on Fri Apr 3 14:25:59 2009
Copyright (c) 1982, 2005, Oracle. All rights reserved.
ORA-01034: ORACLE not available
ORA-27101: shared memory realm does not exist"
Anyone have any idea what the next step is or how to proceed from here?
