Libraries have been installed in:


If you ever happen to want to link against installed libraries

in a given directory, LIBDIR, you must either use libtool, and

specify the full pathname of the library, or use the `-LLIBDIR'

flag during linking and do at least one of the following:

   - add LIBDIR to the `LD_LIBRARY_PATH' environment variable

     during execution

   - add LIBDIR to the `LD_RUN_PATH' environment variable

     during linking

   - use the `-Wl,--rpath -Wl,LIBDIR' linker flag

   - have your system administrator add LIBDIR to `/etc/'

See any operating system documentation about shared libraries for

more information, such as the ld(1) and manual pages.

    Don't forget to add /usr/lib/oracle/12.1/client64/lib to the library search path, perhaps by editing /etc/sysconfig/httpd (On RHEL or Oracle Linux) systems.  Alternatively, if Instant Client is the only software on the machine, it can be easier just to use ldconfig:

    sudo sh -c "echo /usr/lib/oracle/12.1/client64/lib > /etc/"sudo ldconfig
