    Missing HTTP Server on 11g Installation


      Just successfully installed 11g Enterprise. Which, as I understand it, comes bundled nowadays with APEX and the Oracle HTTP server.

      But in my efforts to set up APEX and the HTTP server, I'm noticing a distinct lack of HTTP server! None of the files or folders that are supposed to present are there, but APEX is.

      I've followed the documentation to the letter and its all gone well up to the part where I have to edit the dads.conf file, whereupon I've noticed that file doesnt exist, and neither does the entire directory structure leading to it:


      I cant see any obvious directory in the oracle base that could be the http server home directory.

      Am I being dumb or blind, or am I genuinely missing the HTTP server and relevant directories and files?

      Help much appreciated!

          HTTP server is not available from the database disk, most probably the only one you have installed. There is a companion disk where you can find both, the http server and the APEX product. This is the same thing in 10g, http server and apex were at the companion disk.

            Have a look at http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/products/database/oracle11g/111060_win32soft.html
            There is a Oracle HTTP Server (Apache 2.0) ( for Microsoft Windows (32-bit) available.

              Use the EPG. In database 10g, the HTTP server was on the companion CD. In database 11g, HTTP server is not included(however you can download it if you really want to from the middleware stack or I guess from Apache). In database 11g, the deployment of APEX with HTTP server powered by Apache is deprecated in favour of the Embdded PLSQL Gateway (the modplsql bit from a HTTP server insde the database). The install guide includes both methods to give you a choice. Just because HTTP server is no longer included as part of the database media does not mean that you can not use it.
