Oracle

Supported Versions

Crowd supports the versions of Oracle listed on the Supported Platforms page.

When you run the Crowd Setup Wizard, you will be asked to choose a database and provide configuration settings for that database. It will make things easier if you have created the database and deployed the database driver before you start the Setup Wizard.

Follow the instructions below to set up Oracle for Crowd.

1. Configure Oracle

  1. Create a database user which Crowd will connect as (e.g. crowduser).
  2. Create a database for Crowd to store data in (e.g. crowddb).
  3. Ensure that the user has permission to connect to the database, and create and populate tables

2. Copy the Oracle driver to your application server

This step is only required if you have downloaded the WAR distribution of Crowd.

  1. Download the Oracle JDBC driver from http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/tech/java/sqlj_jdbc/index.html.
  2. Add the Oracle JDBC driver jar to the following directory:
    • For Crowd distribution:
      • Crowd 2.0.2 or later: {CROWD_INSTALL}/apache-tomcat/lib/.
      • Crowd 2.0.1 or earlier: {CROWD_INSTALL}/apache-tomcat/common/lib/.
    • For Crowd WAR distribution, copy the driver JAR to your application server. For example, on Tomcat:
      • Tomcat 5.5.x: common/lib/.
      • Tomcat 6.x: lib/.

Next Steps

Complete the Crowd installation, then start Crowd and run the Setup Wizard as described in the Installation Guide.
