Oracle XE Recovery

How to recover an Oracle XE Backup

First make sure the database is in archive log mode and running backups on a daily basis. See Oracle XE Backup for instructions on how to do this.

Reverting to a Previous Backup

If something has gone wrong with the database, such as deleting or corrupting a database file, and you want to restore it to the last backup run:

# su – oracle

# $ORACLE_HOME/config/scripts/

If the database is in archivelog mode then it will restore from the last backup and a complete recovery of all the archive log files is attempted.
