APEX 5.1.3 installation in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure with os-user: opc?

Dear all,

I want to install APEX 5.1.3 in my Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

I deployed a DB System with Oracle Standard Edition

I created in the container the APEX tablespace.

I can connect as opc via SSH.

I set the environment:

export ORACLE_HOME=/app/oracle/product/12.1.0/dbhome_1


export PATH=$PATH:/u01/app/oracle/product/

export PERL5LIB=/u01/app/oracle/product/

export PATH=$PATH:/u01/app/oracle/product/

When I run the command to install APEX 5.1.3

sqlplus sys/*** as sysdba @apexins.sql APEX APEX TEMP /i/

I get the following error:

Can't locate File/   /u01/app/oracle/product/ (null) at /u01/app/oracle/product/ line 112.

When I check the file with ls -la then I get as opc

-rwxr-x--- 1 oracle oinstall 11194 May 12  2016 /u01/app/oracle/product/

So I cannot read from that file.

Now my question:

How can I install APEX 5.1.3 anyway?

Do I have access to the oracle os-user?

    Before the installation, you should switch to the "oracle" user from the "opc" user with su command:

    <span class="pln">$ sudo su </span><span class="pun">-</span><span class="pln"> oracle</span>
