In this section, we’ll cover some database features and configurations using Oracle Database 19c Release 3 running on Oracle Linux 7.

Quick links to all the tasks:

Task #2: Installing Oracle Database 19c.

Nothing much has changed since Oracle Database 18c as far as installation of the binaries is concerned. You still have to create your own ORACLE_HOME directory, copy the downloaded zip file to that directory, unzip it then run the installer. Let’s crack on:

[oracle@orasvr01 dbhome_1]$ pwd

[oracle@orasvr01 dbhome_1]$ ls -l *.zip
-rw-r--r-- 1 oracle oinstall 3059705302 Nov 13 09:34
[oracle@orasvr01 dbhome_1]$ unzip

[oracle@orasvr01 dbhome_1]$ export ORACLE_BASE=/u01/app/oracle

[oracle@orasvr01 dbhome_1]$ export DISPLAY=<your-workstation-or-IP>:0.0

[oracle@orasvr01 dbhome_1]$ ./runInstaller
Select Set Up Software Only then click Next
Select Single instance database installation then click Next
Select Enterprise Edition then click Next
Check your ORACLE_BASE and ORACLE_HOME values are what you want then click Next
Your Linux group configuration should be picked up, click Next
We will run the root scripts interactively, click Next
Let the installer run its prerequisite checks
If you followed the configuration of Oracle Linux 7, you should see this screen, click Install
Let the installer do its thing until the root script window pops up
In a separate terminal session, run the root script then return to the pop up and click OK
[root@orasvr01 ~]# /u01/app/oracle/product/19.3.0/dbhome_1/
Performing root user operation.
The following environment variables are set as:
    ORACLE_OWNER= oracle
    ORACLE_HOME=  /u01/app/oracle/product/19.3.0/dbhome_1

Enter the full pathname of the local bin directory: [/usr/local/bin]: 
The contents of "dbhome" have not changed. No need to overwrite.
The contents of "oraenv" have not changed. No need to overwrite.
The contents of "coraenv" have not changed. No need to overwrite.

Entries will be added to the /etc/oratab file as needed by
Database Configuration Assistant when a database is created
Finished running generic part of root script.
Now product-specific root actions will be performed.
Oracle Trace File Analyzer (TFA - Standalone Mode) is available at :

Note :
1. tfactl will use TFA Service if that service is running and user has been granted access
2. tfactl will configure TFA Standalone Mode only if user has no access to TFA Service or TFA is not installed 
Et voila! The installation is that simple!
