Step By Step Installation of Oracle Database 10g XE Server in Ubuntu (Online Version)

Oracle database consists of a collection of data managed by the Oracle database management system. You can download Oracle Database XE server for Debian, Mandriva, Novell, Red Hat and Ubuntu Linux distributions

Make sure you have enough disk space and memory

If you have less than 1GB of memory run the following command to create a swap:

$ sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/swpfs1 bs=1M count=1000
$ sudo mkswap /swpfs1
$ sudo swapon /swpfs1

modify /etc /apt/sources.list file:

$ sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

Enter the following code

http://oss.oracle.com/debian deb unstable main non-free

Continue to import GPG key

$ wget http://oss.oracle.com/el4/RPM-GPG-KEY-oracle -O- | sudo apt-key add –

End then

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install oracle-xe

Files that are downloaded about 221MB fast or slow time to download is depending on the speed of your Internet connection, in this stage, I suggest you play poker or drinking hot coffee first

after you finish downloading, you must configure the Oracle TCP / IP ports and other parameters.

No confusion, type wrote this:

$ sudo /etc/init.d/oracle-xe configure

In the last stage you are prompted to enter a password to access your Oracle database.

To be able to access the database through a browser is http://127.0.0.1:8080/apex

Note: Do not Forget to perform

$ sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/swpfs1 bs=1M count=1000
$ sudo mkswap /swpfs1
$ sudo swapon /swpfs1

before you to the installation stage, to avoid failure to install.
