134 - Use SQLPLUS on Linux x86_64

If you want to use just SQLPLUS, you do not have to install Oracle Client Software.
It is gonna be very easy to use it.

1. Download an instant client

   Download Oracle Instant Client from http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/tech/oci/instantclient/htdocs/... Instant Client Package
   - "Basic" and "Instant Client Package"

   Like :


2. Install rpm packages into Linux

# rpm -ihv oracle-instantclient11.2-basic-

# rpm -ihv oracle-instantclient11.2-sqlplus-

3. Path & SQLPLUS

  Make sqlplus runnable from anywhere ( set new PATH or copy to defined PATH)
  If you are using x86_64 Linux, please type the following.

# which sqlplus64 (or locate sqlplus64)


It has made a synbolic link in /usr/bin ("sqlplus64 -> /usr/lib/oracle/11.2/client64/bin/sqlplus")

 4.  Test SQLPLUS

# sqlplus64 user/passwd@'(DESCRIPTION=(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=TCP)(Host=IP or hostname)(Port=port))(CONNECT_DATA=(SID=sid)))'
