Last updated on MARCH 18, 2024

Applies to:

Oracle Fusion Middleware - Version to [Release Oracle11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The purpose of this support document is to give pointers regards a recommended filesystem directory structure for Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g builds.


The advice given is intended for System Administrators / architects, Consultants and Support Engineers.

Note :

While some Fusion Middleware 11g products, such as SOA and Web Center, are dependent upon Metadata Schemas, the scope of this support document does not extend to discussing filesystem or directory structure recommendations for the Metadata Repository. Typically the Metadata Repository resides in an Oracle RDBMS Database. As such the Metadata Repository is governed by database storage and filesystem guidelines or rules.
