Steps of Sequence of Events Take Place Starting Database

Instance Started

We perform preliminary steps before attempting to start an instance of database using SQL ⚹ Plus.

1. Start SQL ⚹ Plus without connecting to the database:


2. Connect to oracle as SYSDBA:

CONNECT username/password AS SYSDBA.

We are connected to oracle and ready to start up an instance of database.

Database Mounted

  • Some forms of recovery require that the database be opened in mount stage.
  • To put the database in mount stage, use the startup mount command:

    SQL > startup mount

  • We have started the database instance with the startup nomount command, we might change it from the nomount to mount startup stage using the database command:

    SQL > alter database mount

Database Opened

  • We just use the startup command:

    SQL > tartup

  • If database is mounted, we can open it with the alter database open command: SQL > alter database open;
