Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: OpenACS Installation. Cannot find ora8.so

Posted by Jun Yamog on
Hi Thelma,

ora8.so is aolserver Oracle driver.  I you may forgotten to compile it.  On the unpacked aolserver 3.3.1ad13 its included there.  Just go the directory and compile it and install it on the aolserver bin directory.

There is also an oracle driver on aolserver sourceforge page, not sure if this one is better.  Its been a while since I installed Oracle for OpenACS.

Maybe others with more recent experience with Oracle will be able to comment more.

Thanks Jun .
Could you please tell me where could i get the unpacked
aolserver 3.3.1ad13  . I found one and tried installing  it  but it was the beta version ie aolserver3.3ad13-oacs1-beta-src.tar.gz . It wasnt creating any files in the bin directory.
