libsqlplus.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Recently I had to install SQL*Plus on a Linux host. In order to do so, I downloaded the appropriate Oracle Instant Client packages from the Oracle site. For my installation, I chose the ZIP files. After I unzipped the client and tried to run
sqlplus, I go the following error:
simon@pandora instantclient_11_2$ ./sqlplus ./sqlplus: error while loading shared libraries: libsqlplus.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Hmm. When I checked the directory with the
sqlplus binary, the file
libsqlplus.so was clearly there.
