  1. Navigate to Oracle downloads, accept the license agreement, and login. If you don’t already have an Oracle account, you’ll need to create one
  2. Download these zip files:
  3. Run mkdir -p ~/bin/instantclient_12_2
  4. Unzip the contents of both zip files directly into ~/bin/instantclient_12_2. The file listing should look like:

    $ find . | sort
  5. Add this line to your ~/.bash_profile

    export PATH="$PATH:$HOME/bin/instantclient_12_2"
  6. Run source ~/.bash_profile

  7. Run sqlplus -V to confirm it’s installed
