A Oracle WebCenter Installation Screens

This appendix contains screenshots and descriptions for all of the Oracle WebCenter installation screens:

Installation screens and instructions for WebCenter back-end components can be found in Chapter 5, "Preparing Back-End Components for WebCenter Services".

A.1 Specify Inventory Directory Screen (UNIX Only)

welcome screen
Description of the illustration install_inventory.gif

This screen appears for UNIX systems only; if this is your first Oracle installation on this host, you must specify the location of the inventory directory. This inventory directory is used by the installer to keep track of all Oracle products installed on the computer.

The default inventory location is User_Home/oraInventory.

In the Operating System Group name field, select the group whose members you want to grant access to the inventory directory; all members of this group will be able to install products on this machine.

A.2 Inventory Location Confirmation Screen (UNIX Only)

welcome screen

If you do not have root access on this machine but wish to continue with the installation, select Continue installation with local inventory.

A.6 Specify Installation Location Screen

welcome screen
Description of the illustration install_location.gif

In the Oracle Middleware home field, specify the absolute path to your existing Oracle Middleware home directory. If you do not know the full path to your Middleware home, you can click Browse to select an existing directory in your system.

In the Oracle Home Directory field, specify the directory inside the Oracle Middleware home where you want to install your products:


You cannot specify oracle_common as the Oracle home directory.

If you are performing an installation on a Windows operating system, be sure that your directory paths are valid and do not contain double backslashes (\\).

The Oracle home directory is where your products will be installed. All software binaries will reside in this directory, and no runtime process can write to this directory.


For the remainder of this document, this directory will be referred to as your WebCenter Oracle home to avoid any confusion with the Oracle home directories of other Oracle Fusion Middleware products. For more information about Oracle home directories, refer to "Oracle Home and Oracle Common Home Directories" in Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation Planning Guide.

A.7 Application Server Screen

If you want to make any changes to the configuration before starting the installation, use the navigation pane and select the topic you want to edit.

If you want to save this configuration to a text file, click Save. This file can be used later if you choose to perform the same installation from the command line. See Appendix C, "Silent Installation and Deinstallation" for more information.

A.9 Installation Progress Screen
