FAQ
Hello,

I am trying to install DBD Oracle from a very long time now. I cannot use
PPM as the systems in my company are behind a proxy. I am a novice in both
Perl and Oracle so do not know a lot bout them. Many things which I searched
on the net went right over my head, Could anyone please tell me step by step
in a languid way so that I can do it. Also, there is a server on which
Oracle is installed and I have all the Oracle tools on my computer. It would
be a great help, looking forward to hearing from you soon. Thanks in
advance,

Reagrds,
Samant Kumar
P.S: I tired building the module using nmake, which I guess is installed in
my system cause It has Microsoft .NET 2003 on it and downloading Oracle
client which I dint know how to install, according to the Readme file for
win32 in the Zip file.

    Can't you download the PPM stuff locally and install it that way?

    Hi

    TMTOWTDI.

    You can get a free Oracle for Windows here:

    http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/products/database/xe/index.html

    It installs an ODBC driver for use via Perl.

    It also installs a web server for administration, at
    http://127.0.0.1:8080/apex

    Perhaps that will help with your original problem.

    Have you set the HTTP_PROXY environment variable?

    Have you read the README?

    To get PPM past the proxy, you'll need to set the env var to something
    like this:

    SET HTTP_proxy=http://yourproxyserver.yourcompany.com:8000

    Also, I'm assuming you're using ActiveState Perl (you didn't say). In
    at least one release, I recall having problems with the PPM repository
    settings that came pre-configured with their PPM tool. I found that the
    PPM settings didn't match the good values in their documentation. If
    you have trouble connecting to a repository, see if you have the same
    problem, and if needed, use the PPM repository command to make changes.
