Error While Loading Shared Libraries: on RedHat Linux 5

After clonning (or installing) an Oracle Applications Release 12.0 or 12.1 instance on Linux 5, an error may occur while starting up the Apache service. The error would be this: 

You are running version 120.6.12000000.4
Starting OPMN managed Oracle HTTP Server (OHS) instance ... exiting with status 204

After review the HTTP log file. The error is very clear about the missing soft link. It would show this error:

/u01/apps/AJI_apps12/ora/10.1.3/Apache/Apache/bin/apachectl startssl: execing httpd
/u01/apps/tech_st/10.1.3/Apache/Apache/bin/httpd: error while loading shared
libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Soft link is missing.

To solve this issue, Shut down all Oracle Application Services

As root user, create a soft link as follows:
# ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/

Start up all Oracle Application Services
