Oracle Instant Client Installation

This was a useful guide to installing the Oracle Instant Client and SQL Plus applications on a Linux system.

The type of download file will vary depending on your Linux installation.  The two basic file types are the "instantclient-basic" and the "instantclient-sqlplus" files.


$ mkdir ~/software
$ cd ~/software
$ unzip /tmp/
$ unzip /tmp/ 

The versions may vary depending on your current environment.  To use the software, set your PATH variables:

$ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/tomcat/software/instantclient_12_1

$ sqlplus scott/tiger@//
