Hi Im into new territory for me here
hope some one can point me in the right direction.
I have an internal linux server running 11i and APEX4 with HTTP server
all apps work perfectly internally
I have a HTTP server in the DMZ with modplsql configured to link to one of the apps in my internal network
The app is in a Linux box with 11i and is 4.0 apex.
Internaly (on the LAN) the HTTP server that is on the same box as 11i and Apex renders every thing properly.
When I try to access the application via the web images do not render.
Dropdown lists all work but the dynamic actions on them don't,
also the submit function does nothing when pressed.
Can any one point me in the direction of reading material on this kind of setup?
Thanks in advance
If I understand correctly your setup, I assume you have not copy APEX images to other server folder.
Check from configuration file witch folder alias /i/ is pointing and place APEX install files image folder content there.

My Comms bods have their load ballencers apparently working as a reverse proxi. But making the HTTP server a reverse proxi is a thought. I'll run it by them.
Thanks for the avenue of investigation.
@AndyPol - stiil waiting on the comms bods getting back to me.
Ok eventualy I was permitted to see (they sent me a copy) the dads.conf file on the HTTP server and given rights to write to the image folder.
I copied the images from
/fs1/app/oracle/product/ohs_apex/Apache/images/ on the internal server
on the DMZ server.
the following is the dads.conf - I'm not seeing anything wrong with it, can any one note anything obviouse?
Alias /i/ "/fs1/app/oracle/product/ohs_home/Apache/images/"
AddType text/xml xbl
AddType text/x-component htc
PlsqlDatabaseConnectString crdapex.southlanarkshire.gov.uk:1521:orcl ServiceNameFormat
Allow from all

Hi Andy, thanks for getting back to me,
this is driving me nuts.
In my orginisation IT is devided into small boxes for each function so...
Apex - development - me and kev
Linux - server team
Oracle - DBAs
HTTP Server - DBAs (because it comes on the oracle CD go figure??)
Any changes to permissions or security - the opperations team
Anything to do with internet - internet team
I raised a request with the comms team to look at using the box as a reverse proxi, they have not got back to me yet.
Apex is low on their priority list.
From what they told me they have a hardware reverse proxi to "translate" the incoming requests to the DMZ http server. The DMZ http server then uses modplsql to query my application. The app is based of view of the data on the Internal DB server.
With a bit of luck they might let us try the reverse proxi on the DMZ server.
Like I said I'm a bit out my depth on this one.
In addition to Andy's Comments the following should be noted.
For some reason the Http server required the images path to be the same on both boxes - no idea why - if you install http server stand alone you will get an ohs_home if installed with apex you get ohs_apex, create an ohs_apex folder and copy every thing into it.
The other wierd bit is that the http server will no longer look here for its images, it will go to the apex server that is running HTTP server.
So why it neads this folder or indead why it neads the conf files to point here is a mystery to me.
Any way heres hopping this helps someone else.
