[root@oracle-linux ~]# groupadd wls
[root@oracle-linux ~]# useradd -g wls wls
[root@oracle-linux ~]# passwd wls
[root@oracle-linux ~]# su - wls
-bash-4.2$ umask 027

Check wls user settings and edit .bash_profile;

-bash-4.2$ id
uid=1001(wls) gid=1001(wls) groups=1001(wls) context=unconfined_u:unconfined_r:unconfined_t:s0-s0:c0.c1023

-bash-4.2$ more .bash_profile 
export WL_HOME=/home/wls/12.1.3.0/wlserver/
export CONFIG_JVM_ARGS="-Djava.security.egd=file:/dev/./urandom"

Fix the file paths according to your system and Install Weblogic;

/usr/java/jdk1.8.0_20/bin/java -jar -d64 /home/wls/fmw_12.1.3.0.0_wls.jar -silent -invPtrLoc /etc/oraInst.loc -responseFile /home/wls/response.file.rsp

After successful installation create domain, following steps below using WLST;

-bash-4.2$ pwd
/home/wls/12.1.3.0/wlserver/common/bin
-bash-4.2$ ./commEnv.sh 
-bash-4.2$ ./wlst.sh

closeTemplate()

After creating domain, you will have startup scripts ready. Run the scripts and follow the screen output;

 
cd ~/12.1.3.0/user_projects/domains/test/bin/
./startWebLogic.sh & 
./startNodeManager.sh &

Use your web browser to reach the admin console, after startup;
