Running the Oracle HTTP Server on OpenVMS


Oracle9i Installation Guide Release 2 ( for HP Alpha OpenVMS

File Naming Conventions

In general, users who are running the Oracle HTTP Server for OpenVMS can
specify either UNIX-style file names or OpenVMS-style file names


The Oracle

HTTP Server usually displays UNIX-style file names.

The ODS-5 volume structure, introduced in HP OpenVMS Alpha Version 7.2-1,
supports long file names, allows the use of a wider range of characters within file
names, and preserves case within file names


However, the DEC C RTL that is

shipped with HP OpenVMS Alpha Version 7.2-1 does not provide full support for
extended file names on ODS-5 devices


This lack of full support imposes certain

restrictions on users running the Oracle HTTP Server for HP OpenVMS Alpha.

Because mixed UNIX-style and OpenVMS-style extended file names are not yet
supported by the DEC C RTL, you might be required to use UNIX-style syntax
when interacting with the Oracle HTTP Server


An example would be appending

additional directories or a file name to a root.

The following examples illustrate mixed UNIX-style and OpenVMS-style file names
that are not supported in HP OpenVMS Alpha Version 7.2-1:




You can, however, modify the last example so that it will work as an OpenVMS
extended file name that has a tilde (~) as the first character


Precede the leading

tilde (~) with the Extended File Specifications escape character (^)


For example:


For more information about using the tilde (~) in OpenVMS extended file names,
see the OpenVMS Guide to Extended File Specifications at the following web site:

Mixed UNIX-style and OpenVMS-style file names will be supported in a future
release of the DEC C RTL for HP OpenVMS Alpha.

File Transfer Process and Access Control List

When performing a File Transfer Process (FTP) operation, ensure that the Access
Control List (ACL) for the target directory on the Oracle HTTP Server allows FTP
access, as follows:

When transferring new files:
