    Unanswered: DBI install on UNIX

    I need to have the module installed on a UNIX server.

    My situation:
    I have some perl scripts that was running successfully on an NT server, but because of a serious security breech, have been moved to a UNIX server. This server has the standard Perl install, but not DBI. The Oracle database will not be moved and resides on a different server. It was not on the breeched NT server either.

    My Question:
    Exactly what needs to be installed on my UNIX server in order to access this remote Oracle database with my Perl scripts?

    Arrow Running DBI/PERL on Unix to access remote db.

    Just try like this..

    Go to and search for the following modules:

    1. CGI, 2.DBI, 3.DBD::Oracle

    download, uncompress and install.

    To install each module, change the directory contains uncompressed files and
    issue the following commands

    1. perl Makefile.PL 2. make

    su #make install.

    change the directory to cgi-bin or the script directory, modify the cgi/perl scripts
    by adding SID name with NT server address.

    run the scripts at command line, debug and try running the scripts via http server !

    Any problem, please post again ..
