Oracle9iAS (9.0.2.0.1) Portal Installation On Windows 2000

Oracle 9iAS Portal is a web-based development tool allowing rapid development of portal style web applications. In this article I'll briefly describe the installation of Oracle Infrastructure, a prerequisite, and Oracle Portal.

Download Software

Download the Oracle installation files from otn.oracle.com.

Hosts File

The "c:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc\hosts" file must contain a fully qualified name for the server.

<IP-address>  <fully-qualified-machine-name>  <machine-name>

Infrastructure Installation

Start the Oracle Universal Installer (OUI) by double-clicking on the "Disk1setup.exe".

During the installation select the appropriate ORACLE_HOME for infrastructure (C:\oracle\infra) and select the infrastructure installation.

Post Infrastructure Installation

On completion of the infrastructure installation perform the following tasks.

Portal Installation

Start the Oracle Universal Installer (OUI) by double-clicking on the Disk1setup.exe.

During the installation select the appropriate ORACLE_HOME for portal (c:\oracle\portal) and select the application server installation, with the portal and wireless option.

Post Portal Installation

On completion of the portal installation perform the following tasks.

Portal Usage

With all the services running you can start using portal at the following URL.

http://<fully-qualified-machine-name>:7778/pls/portal

The port number for portal can vary depending on the installation but it is recorded in the "c:\oracle\portal\Apache\Apache\setupinfo.txt" file.

Once at this page you can login using either "portal", the portal DBA user, or "portal_admin", the portal administrator user. The passwords will be the value assigned during the installation.

Starting and Stopping Services

The service can be started and stopped using the services dialog, by Enterprise Manager Website or using the following commands.

Rem Start everything
dbstart
lsnrctl start
agentctl start
oidmon start
oidctl server=oidldapd instance=1 configset=1 start
dcmctl start -cl
emctl start

Rem Stop everything
emctl stop
dcmctl shutdown
oidctl server=oidldapd instance=1 configset=1 stop
oidmon stop
agentctl stop
lsnrctl stop
dbshut

Once the services are started up they should be restarted using Enterprise Manager.

Hope this helps. Regards Tim...
