Reconfigure Oracle-XE to a different port for jdbc

I wanted to reconfigure my Oracle-XE instance to run the tnslsnr on port 1522 instead of 1521. So as first try I went in and just changed the listener.ora and tnsnames.ora files. But after those changes, the system did not give away a beep when I e.g. called lsnrctrl status.

Solution to this was (on RHEL 5.3):

# mv /etc/sysconfig/oracle-xe /tmp/
# /etc/init.d/oracle-xe configure

The script asked some questions about ports (you can look them up in the copy in /tmp) and the db password etc. And then started the database with the new port.

$ find / -name oracle-xe
