Oracle HTTP Server - Version to [Release AS10g to 12c]
Oracle Fusion Middleware - Version to [Release AS10g to 12c]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The purpose of this document is to provide simple quick-start instructions on configuring Oracle HTTP Server to execute a simple stored "Hello World" PL/SQL procedure using mod_plsql.  This document outlines the simplest way to configure Oracle HTTP Server to run a simple PL/SQL procedure. From here, more custom procedures may be created, and Portal and/or APEX configurations may be used. Note there are different administration features available with different versions, but this document describes the underlying functionality in all mod_plsql versions.

Oracle HTTP Server 10g installed from the Companion CD (based on Apache 2.0) does not support MOD_PLSQL, referencing <Note: 428391.1>, "Is it Possible To Configure Mod_plsql With Apache 2.0?".  The Oracle HTTP Server shipped as part of Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Web-Tier Utilities is based on Apache 2.2 and does support MOD_PLSQL. More information on this release is provided within <Note 1304604.1>, "Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Web-Tier FAQ".
