Start Oracle From Git Bash


To run Oracle SQL in Git Bash.


You have sqlplus added to your PATH.

export PATH=${PATH}:/c/oraclexe/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/server/bin/


The option /nolog doesn’t work as expected.

$ sqlplus /nolog

SQL*Plus: Release Production on Mer. Juin 7 09:43:47 2023

Copyright (c) 1982, 2014, Oracle.  All rights reserved.

When SQL*Plus starts, and after CONNECT commands, the site profile
(e.g. $ORACLE_HOME/sqlplus/admin/glogin.sql) and the user profile
(e.g. login.sql in the working directory) are run.  The files may
contain SQL*Plus commands.

Refer to the SQL*Plus User's Guide and Reference for more information.


Luckily, googling “start sqlplus from git bash”, I found the solution in this related Oracle Forum post: using an extra slash will do, i.e. sqlplus //nolog.
