You need to directly tell where your http port is. To do so; open up the folder where your Oracle is stored and navigate to server folder( in my case C:\Oracle\oraclexe\app\oracle\product\11.2.0\server) in that folder right click to Get_Started file and choose properties. There you can hand type your http port which is usually 8080 in my case: ....127.0.0.1:8080/apex/f?p=4950
The problem should be solved.
Hope this helps you get through it..
I followed you suggestion and link was correct http://127.0.0.1:8080/apex/f?p=4950
I clicked get started again and got the following:
Unable to connect
Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at 127.0.0.1:8080.
The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.
I have reinstalled twice. I still get the same problem. I am on a 64bit machine and installed the new 64bit version
As already suggested by yoonas, will clarify.
- Ensure the database is running.
- Ensure the listener is running.
- Verify the http port 8080 endpoint is listed in the listener status output.
If the install is completely happy, all three points should be fine. If not, well, then its not fine. Any one of those items can prevent the apex web pages from working. One must have all those ducks in a row for the web pages to work.
Something as simple as a slight variation in the NIC settings has been known to confuse the installer. If the listener is running, stop it:
Then move OH/network/admin/listener.ora file out of the way and try the pure default setup, as others here have suggested here before. And restart the listener, check its status. Might have to connect as system (or sys as sysdba can also work) and force a registration. Or stop and start the database instance.
... password ...
alter system register;
Something like that. Or, try adjusting the ...HOST= setting in the listener.ora file, that is usually the bit that can cause trouble. One option for HOST= setting is using the IPv4 "any TCP address" value of 0.0.0.0 but if the host has a wireless NIC and you don't want to service remote connections via that device use the correct IP address, or if HOSTNAME is configured properly on the host that can work as well. *IF* the host setup is correct.
