Welcome to the forum. Please read our OraFAQ Forum Guide and How to use [code] tags and make your code easier to read

mySQL is not the same as Oracle 11g. Which did you install? Also, installing the software is not the same as creating a database. Have you created a database yet?

i m just starting.actually i m referring to mySQl plus which comes under oracle 11g.
in fact i just wanted to install the client edition,but my uni had the software for 64 bit.i then directly downloaded from oracle website the whole software for 32 bit which my system supports.i actually need to access my uni database through my laptop at home.my sir told me to copy 2 files which have the usernames and passwords in my oracle......folders,but i couldnot find the folder which he told me nor the filenames which he said should exist.so i thought ok first let me just simply run it with the username and password i created when installing oracle.well it doesn't run.

This is not a very well known Oracle error message.
You had better ask your teacher for the details of how to connect to the University database again, it would seem that you misunderstood: there is no way that copying a file of usernames and passwords to your PC would give you access to it.

So talk to your proffesor.
If you've entered a username and password when installing oracle then that is probably for a oracle DB installed on your pc. It's not going to connect you to your uni DB.

It seems that you should sit back and re-read everything you learnt so far.

As far as I can tell, there's no "mySQL plus". There is "SQL*Plus", which is Oracle's command line tool to access an Oracle database.

Therefore, get familiar with terms and use them appropriately. Don't mix apples and pears because it only makes confusion; maybe you know what you mean, but noone understands you.
