To install TimesTen 18.1 on your host, create a directory to contain the software and uncompress the downloaded zip file into that directory. (You will need the Linux unzip utility in order to uncompress the downloaded file.) Once the downloaded software is uncompressed, then the installation is complete!
In this example we will install TImesTen to the /grid/sw directory. The original file that was downloaded from Oracle is in /tmp.
You must also make sure that your Linux kernel is properly configured to run TimesTen. Since in this experiment we are installing everything on one host for experimentation, we can skip a few configuration parameters that would be required for a production environment.
Once /etc/sysctl.conf is configured, run "sudo /sbin/sysctl -p" to reconfigure the kernel without needing to reboot.
Once this is done, then you are ready to go to the next step in the quickstart blog.
