Installing Oracle Database Software

Oracle Database is a popular relational database administration system. It has various advantages, including high availability, scalability, and security. This blog post will go through how to install Oracle Database software on a Windows computer. This step-by-step instruction is intended for novices who are installing Oracle Database software for the first time.

Step 1: Examine the System Requirements

You must check that your system fulfills the minimal requirements before installing Oracle Database software. On their website, Oracle provides a thorough list of system requirements. You can verify the requirements for your Oracle Database version and operating system.

Step 2: Get the Installation Media

The following step is to obtain Oracle Database installation media from the Oracle website. The programme is available for download via the Oracle Technology Network (OTN) website. To get the software, you must first register on the website. After you have registered, you may download the Oracle Database software for your operating system. 

Step 3: Unzip the Installer Media

You must extract the installation media to a local location on your workstation after downloading the software. To extract the downloaded file, use a tool such as 7-Zip.

Step 4: Run the Oracle Universal Installer.

Launch the Oracle Universal Installer to install the Oracle Database software (OUI). The OUI executable file can be found in the extracted directory.

Step 5: Install and configure the Oracle Database Software

The OUI will start a wizard to walk you through the installation procedure. You must choose an installation type and enter the required information, such as the installation location, database name, and administrative password.

Step 6: Determine the Installation Method

You can select from the following installation options:

Step 7: Give the Required Data

You must supply the following information:

Installation Location: Enter the place where the Oracle Database software will be installed.
Database Name: Give your database a name.

Step 8: Choose More Options

The wizard will also give you the ability to select extra parameters like port numbers, character sets, and sample schemas. You can change these variables to suit your needs.

Step 9: Begin Installation

You can begin the installation procedure once you have configured the appropriate settings. The OUI will show a summary of the parameters you have set. After reviewing the settings, click the Install button to begin the installation process.
