Fix not enough temp space when try to install Oracle WebTier

Oracle WebTier installer requires 80MB of free temp space to be able to install the Oracle WebTier components. When you try to start the installer if you do not have enough temp space you could get a error or info message that installer check failed and you would not be able to proceed with the installation. To fix this issue you have to increase your temp space. You can do it like this:

  • change to root

su – root

  • make new folder for the temporary files

mkdir /u01/tmp

  • change the owner which you will use to install the product, in my case user is oracle and the group oinstall.

chown oracle:oinstall /u01/tmp

  • change the read-write settings

chmod 1777 /u01/tmp

  • export the new path so that the installer can use it

export TEMP=/u01/tmp

export TMPDIR=/u01/tmp


Now you can start the installer: ./runInstaller

Later you can remove the folder like this:

su – root

unset TEMP

unset TMPDIR

rmdir /u01/tmp
