Oracle for Mapserver

  • You need the Oracle Instant Client
    • For this tutorial we'll assume that's it is installed in /opt/oracle/
  • With mapserver installed do
    sudo apt-get install libmsplugin-oracle-src 
  • To install the Mapserver plugin:
    • We need to set the ORACLE_HOME environment variable first
       export ORACLE_HOME=/opt/oracle/ 
    • Then we run
       sudo mapserver-oracle-build yes
    • To use the Mapserver Oracle plugin you need to use the plugin connectiontype and specify the path to, like this
       CONNECTIONTYPE plugin
       PLUGIN "/usr/lib/msplugins/"
