Very simple cgi page to run sqlplus script

To create a very simple web page which displays the results of an sql query you can simply do the following:

Underneath your apache installation, create a file in the cgi-bin directory

In my case $APACHE_HOME/cgi-bin/test.html

The content of this file is just the following:

#!/bin/sh
echo Content-type: text/html
# Required blank line
echo
export ORAENV_ASK=NO
export ORACLE_SID=Your SID Here
. oraenv
sqlplus -s username/password@database @file_containing_sql_you_want_to_run.sql

Then all you need to do is create a file called file_containing_sql_you_want_to_run.sql (also in $APACHE_HOME/cgi-bin)

This file needs to contain the following:

set  markup html on -- the most important line
set heading off
set feedback off
select sysdate from dual; -- your sql here
exit; -- this is needed to get the script to exit or the page will just hang

And thats it - this produces a very simple page - this is useful for utilities and provding access to some data to other people without needing database logins etc
