I get the following error when trying to connect through sqlplus.
Enter user-name: system
ORA-01034: ORACLE not available
server is 188.8.131.52
Your database is not up and running, thats what that means...
If this is a personal Oracle installed on a PC, there will be a "Start Database" option on your start menu.
In any case, you can connect in SQL*PLUS as SYSDBA and start the database.
USER: sys as sysdba
This is a very simple explanation for what can be a complex process. I'm assuming this is a test or learning database that will not be depended upon by anyone other than you . . .
