Gossamer Forum and Oracle
Greetings all,
got the scripts - have everything installed, however, apparently the $ORACLE_HOME isn't set anywhere for the script to see.

Where can I set this in order to go through the setup?

I should add that since all the files are written by the web server, I have no way of editing them.

(My first idea was to add things like

$ENV{"ORACLE_HOME"} = "/u01/app/oracle/product/8.1.7";

to the admin and setup scripts, but I can't do that).

Any other ideas?

The best thing to do is edit Apache. Add:

SetEnv ORACLE_HOME /path/to/orahome

in your httpd.conf. This allows you to connect with any perl script using DBI.
