I've installed oracle11g on OracleLinux5, in order to replicate a customers oracle configuration. I only have access via SSH and the web interface, and i need to setup the character set,and a few other parameters NLS, N-NLS. Of what i understand it seems i cannot alter the parameters of the current database, and i would need to install a new one and set the parameters at creation time. Is this true ? If yes, how could i do this via SSH ?
