My Oracle XE database was useless mess of unused tables etc. Using SqlPlus and several google results, I finally managed to drop the
XE database, but now when I connect with SqlPLus IO cannot create a database. For any
CREATE DATABASE command issue, I get back the error
ORACLE not available.
I assume this is as I deleted the only db on that server, which only has room for one db, SqlPlus now gets confused as to how to connect, still trying to find
XE. How can I connect as admin without connection to a db. so that I am connected to Oracle but not to a db? This seems to new the most likely solution.
