I haven't had any problem w/ the Oracle 10g Express Edition home page until today.What changed?
Software does not spontaneously break.
Well, I also don't know the answer since I don't use this product. And this forum is for the core database product and its related topics. So I would suggest that you close the thread here and repost it on Apex's native forum(see below for link) where there are people who are using it day in and day out. Chances would be better to get a more correct reply from there,
Oracle Application Express (APEX)
Is the listener running:
'lsnrctl status' to make sure that the listener is running and listening on the http port.
what is the contents of your hosts file?
Is the database running?

Now I am getting this error message "http://127.0.0.1:8080/apex".
- the XE Listener is not running (check under Windows Services)
- the Apex EPG is not configured in the XE database
I am able to ping via the great DOS Command and I got through without any problem at all with the 127.0.0.1 without inputting the 8080.Do not confuse the 32bit command console of Windows with MS-DOS. They have very little in common (only shares common command names and nothing else).
Anyway, I like to find what's wrong and what are the fix so that I can get back onto "Oracle Database Home Page". Please clarify the steps that are need to solve the problem.Check if the Listener is running. You can do that by looking at the services applet (Control Panel | Administration | Services).
You can also do that via the command line command "+lsnrctl status+".
You can test network connectivity to the listener using telnet, e.g. "+telnet 127.0.0.1 8080+" (press enter a few times upon a successful connection in order to disconnect).
If you download Apex (zip) from Oracle, you will find a configuration script called apex_epg_config_core.sql that does this. It can be used as a template of how to configure the "+apex+" DAD.
Finally, you need the Oracle XE instance to register itself, and its XDB endpoints, with the XE Listener. For that, the initialisation parameter LOCAL_LISTENER needs to be correctly configured (or null for using the default configuration for the parameter).
You now need to isolate the problem (listener not running/epg dad not configured/etc) and if unable to correct it, report back with the details of what you found and what you have tried.
