httpd: error while loading shared libraries: libdb.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory   4 comments

Review the HTTP log file. The error is very clear about the missing soft link. It would show this error:

<physical Path>/10.1.3/Apache/Apache/bin/apachectl startssl: execing httpd
<physical Path>/10.1.3/Apache/Apache/bin/httpd: error while loading shared
libraries: libdb.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

cd /d01/oracle/VIS/inst/apps/VIS_r12/logs/ora/10.1.3/opmn

vi HTTP_Server~1.log
--------
14/03/04 00:54:51 Start process
--------
/d01/oracle/VIS/inst/apps/VIS_r12/ora/10.1.3/Apache/Apache/bin/apachectl startssl: execing httpd

To implement the solution, please execute the following steps:

1. Shut down all Oracle Application Services.

2. As the unix root user, create a soft link as follows:

ln -s /usr/lib/libgdbm.so.2.0.0 /usr/lib/libdb.so.2

3. Start up all Oracle Application Services.
