Installing Oracle WebCenter Content 11g

In this blog I would like to briefly show the steps to install Oracle WebCenter Content 11g.  Oracle WebCenter 11g is based on Weblogic server now and they also need database schemas created just as other Oracle Fusion applications.

I will install them in my laptop with Windows 7 and use Oracle XE 10g as the database where the schemas reside. 

You can download Oracle XE, Weblogic 10.3.6 and RCU from this url: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/soasuite/downloads/index.html

You can download Oracle WebCenter Content from the url: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/webcenter/content/downloads/index.html

Step 1: Install Weblogic 

If you already have Weblogic installed you can skip this step.

My laptop runs on Windows 7 64-bit so the download of Oracle Weblogic 10.3.6 is wls1036_generic.jar.  To start the installer just use the following command.

 java -jar wls1036_generic.jar

After the successful installation there is new folder as the below:

Step 2: Install database schemas using RCU 

My RCU download is ofm_rcu_win_11.  Unzuip this file into the folder RCU and run the following command.  Here it is assumed that Oracle XE 10g is installed already. 



 cd RCU/rcuHome/BIN 


After RCU installation is done, several schemas are created in Oracle XE. 

Step 3: Install Oracle WebCenter Content 11g

The download of WebCenter Content 11g are two zip files: ofm_wcc_generic_11. and ofm_wcc_generic_11.
Unzip two files into the folders: Disk1 and Disk2.
Use the following command to 

cd C:\MyDownload\OracleWebCenter\Disk1 

setup -jreLoc C:\Java\jdk1.7.0_06

Oracle Middleware Home is: C:\Oracle\Middleware and Oracle Home Directory is: Oracle_ECM1.

After the installation there will be one Oracle_ECM1 folder created under Oracle Middleware.

Step 4: Create WebCenter Content Domain

In this step one domain for WebCenter Content will be created.   Use the following command to start Conifguration Wizard.


Choose the products: WebCenter Content and WebCenter Imaging.

The domain name is: ecm_domain.

User name: weblogic and password: welcome1

Change the schema owner name if they are not correct.

Create the cluster whose name is: WCC_Cluster.

Create the machine whose name is: LocalMachine.

Step 5: Start WebCenter Content 11g

Now WebCenter Content 11g can be started.
This command is used to start the Admin server.


These commands are used to start the managed  servers.

C:\Oracle\Middleware\user_projects\domains\ecm_domain\bin\startManagedWebLogic.cmd UCM_server1 http://localhost:7001
C:\Oracle\Middleware\user_projects\domains\ecm_domain\bin\startManagedWebLogic.cmd IPM_server1 http://localhost:7001
C:\Oracle\Middleware\user_projects\domains\ecm_domain\bin\startManagedWebLogic.cmd IBR_server1 http://localhost:7001
