I am installing Oracle WebLogic Server (WLS) 11gR1 (10.3.6) Linux 6 (centos) ...
As a 'Oracle' user i started the installation by,
$JAVA_HOME/bin/java -Xmx1024m -jar wls1036_generic.jar
At 55% completion step 'updating file permissions' the installation hangs up.
I waited for a long time but no use.
Can anybody tell me what is the cause for this.
Thanks in advance
You should review the installation guide at
There's a note regarding a parameter that is required when installing on Unix or Linux if you include the examples.
If that doesn't help, then maybe you can add the -log=full_path_to_log_file and review the log. It works with a windows install, not sure if it works for a Unix install, but it wouldn't hurt to try. If it doesn't work, check the logs directory in your middleware home to see if an install log is created by default.
