I am working on Oracle 188.8.131.52. The use of the DB is only for APEX.
I installed APEX in a separate table space and datafile.
When taking a full cold backup, is it enough to backup only two datafiles:
APEX.dbf : Where APEX was installed.
APEX_2150521780606761.DBF: The workspace datafile.
Or, what is the most efficient way to take cold backup for Database that is dedicated for APEX ??
For a cold backup - You need ALL data files, control files, redo files, parameter files, (and maybe a few other things...)
Best way for a backup -- RMAN.
You should be able to enable 'standard scripts' through the use of 'em'. (enterprise manager)
(BTW - these will be HOT backup -- the preferred method.)
also .. "Database dedicated to APEX" makes no sense at all.
Your database should be dedicated to handling ALL of your data with APEX being one-of-many applications that is installed 'in' the database.
