"database not open" - Rookie

Hi

I'm trying to connect to my oracle install using sqlplus and create a
new user. I get the error "database not open". How do I open this?

I'm using Oracle 9i Enterprise Edition on Linux Redhat 8

Thx

It sounds as though Oracle is not running.
$ SQLPLUS
/ as sysdba
startup
exit

I suspect that since you are asking the above question,
that you'll have other problems due to the lack of RTFM.
