    Hi,

     

    You can Start from here:Oracle Database Online Documentation 10g Release 2 (10.2)

    If you get any Error issue, you can post in the forum with error log and details.

    Then why install such an old release?

     

    You should have started with 11.2 or even 12.1.

    Oracle 10g is so old it is not even publicly available for download any more.  Where did you get it?

    Why not ask your "senior staff" that advised you to install an obsolete version?  What position are you in and who are these "senior staff"?

     

    What background do you have in programming?  SQL? Operating systems?  Networking?

    Are you wanting to learn how to administer a database?  Develop applications that use a database?  Something else?

     

    Oracle Database Online Documentation 11g Release 2 (11.2)

     

    Most important:

    Concepts Guide

    Two-Day DBA

     

     

    Go to  docs.oracle.com.

     

    Locate the link for your Oracle product and version, and click on it.

     

    You are now at the entire documentation set for your selected Oracle product and version.

     

    BOOKMARK THAT LOCATION

     

    Spend a few minutes just getting familiar with what is available here. Take special note of the "books" and "search" tabs. Under the "books" tab (for 10.x) or the "Master Book List" link (for 11.x) you will find the complete documentation library.

     

    Spend a few minutes just getting familiar with what kind of documentation is available there by simply browsing the titles under the "Books" tab.

     

    Open the Reference Manual and spend a few minutes looking through the table of contents to get familiar with what kind of information is available there.

     

    Do the same with the SQL Reference Manual.

     

    Do the same with the Utilities manual.

     

    You don't have to read the above in depth.  They are reference manuals.  Just get familiar with what is there to be referenced. Ninety percent of the questions asked on this forum can be answered in less than 5 minutes by simply searching one of the above manuals.

     

    Then set yourself a plan to dig deeper.

    - *Read a chapter a day from the Concepts Manual*.

    - Take a look in your alert log.  One of the first things listed at startup is the initialization parms with non-default values. Read up on each one of them (listed in your alert log) in the Reference Manual.

    - Take a look at your listener.ora, tnsnames.ora, and sqlnet.ora files. Go to the Network Administrators manual and read up on everything you see in those files.

    - *When you have finished reading the Concepts Manual, do it again*.
