Re: DBI, DBD::Oracle and LD_LIBRARY_PATH
in thread DBI, DBD::Oracle and LD_LIBRARY_PATH
I know this is an old post, but it seems to still be relevant. On both Solaris and Linux, I have always used a wrapper shell script to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH etc.
When I recently had to run a PERL script using Oracle as a CGI via an Apache web server, I found that I could use Apache's SetEnv directive to set these environmental vars in my httpd.conf file, like so:
SetEnv LD_LIBRARY_PATH /lib64:/lib:/opt/oraClient/126.96.36.199/lib
SetEnv ORACLE_HOME /opt/oraClient/188.8.131.52
