        I don't know what the problem is and it's not my job or the job of another user to find the error.
        For Oracle it is really embarrassing that they do not notice the mistake in their system or can not find it...

        But whingeing about that is not a solution for us users for this problem.

          This is the second day I have not been able to download. My goal is to download Oracle Express 10g.
          My guess is that Oracle's single signon solution is broke.
          I can logon to this:
          https://login.oracle.com/mysso/signon.jsp
          But the download login is:
          https://profile.oracle.com/jsp/realms/otnLogin.jsp

          I'm new to Oracle and I have to admit that I'm surprised about the number of bugs in their website.
          I will add this thread to the download forum.
          Cheers!

            Same problem in 2007 -> download.oracle.com broken

            The thread was answered by [mark.shirley@oracle.com]. Try to contact him.

            A problem in the infrastructure was identified and took several days to fix.

                    I tried to write a mail to [mark.shirley@oracle.com] but this mailaddress does not exists.

                    Maybe anyone has another mailaddress to contact due to this problem. Calling Oracle is not possible for me without paying a lot of money.
                    Could anyone other (from US) try this?

                      Why don't you email Larry (l.ellisson@oracle.com)? This will definitely work, because Larry doesn't like to get this type of e-mails ;)
                      Years ago, our European site was supported by OTS in the US because our Headquarters made a mistake. It took us 2 years to get this corrected. How was it corrected? By e-mailing Larry!

                        I am still not able to download anything.

                        I am trying to get:

                        I called calling customer support and they said they are "aware of the issue and working on it. We apologize for any inconvenience"

                          Thx Sybrand :)

                          I also wrote a mail to Larry. Hoping the call and this mail are suffice to do the problem be resolved as possible.
                          If I get an answer I will tell you about.

                          The only thing we can do now...is waiting. Cheers up guys! ;)

                            Sorry guys...I got a delivery notification about my mail right now. Larry's mailaddress does not exist.

                            @Sybrand:
                            Could you find out another one that works?

                              I can't download either 11g either. It rejects my credentials the same way others are describing. And one more complaint: the download page that includes 11g shows an option button that is selected by default indicating I have accepted the license agreement, but none of the download links even work unless I manually re-select that option. Why preselect it for the user if it doesn't work until the user clicks it? If you want to force the user to select the 'accept' option to move forward with downloads, wouldn't it be smarter to not make that button the preselected one?! It's a confusing, big bowl of wrong. Many of us are here, Oracle, because we are evaluting your products to see whether you can deliver the goods. In light of this, do you think your clunky, poorly designed and non-functional Web site is a good tool for breaking the ice with your potential customers?

                                I cant download the software either, I am a strayer university student and it is required for our class. I cant believe oracle cant even create a functioning website, I think we are going to use SQL as oracle seems to be crap and unreliable.
