EBS 12.1.3 apachectl startssl libdb.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


I had this error during my EBS Clone process. Here is the most important information ; This application server had fresh O/S installation and pre-install rpm package is already installed and other configurations are done.

After post clone, adstrtal.sh script exiting status 1  and I didnt see any error on screen but I checked components logs and Apache log show ths error below. Solution is easy 🙂
