    hi sir,
    how to install multiple databases on a single server..
    is it required to reset the oracle_home/base in the .bash_profile or i need to create a new one in the bash_profiel..

    pls guide me

  6. Kamran Agayev A. Says:

    ORACLE_HOME and ORACLE_BASE should remain. You can add aliases to the bash_profile and make setting ORACLE_SID environment variable easy
    Create new database, export ORACLE_SID each time and connect to the database you’ve specified

    Hi Sonny

    I would suggest you to start reading Oracle documentation. There’re some video tutorials in my blog where you can find how to make a backup and recovery.

    However, tuning is not an easy issue, so you need to know how Oracle works and from where to start tuning.
    Check the following file and make sure you start reading, reading and reading
