    Google search suggests that it will be down until Saturday 16th, 2pm PT

    apex.oracle.com is for "kicking the tiers" and showing snippets of your application (eg for help from this community). Don't use it for production. I wouldn't use it for development.

    If you need something more resilient, look into Oracle Cloud Free Tier. (This may be your best option for Production but has the caveat of "can't restore backups" .. which can be overriden by moving to Paid Tier)

    There is also the possibility of installing Oracle XE (and APEX) locally. But, setting up the ability to access via internet is a PITA.

    Site is down now on oct 15 at 22:30 (argentina).

    I was developing a program and the server stopped working

    is the apex site stable?

    am i wasting my time learning apex?

    I don't trust to give companies a system where the server fails.

    Sorry one last time:

    If someone want to know...

    THIS is what I meant by trolls.

    Not able to follow the basic rules.

    -no hello,

    -no good by

    -no thank you,

    -no info if issue is solved,

    -not able to describe their "problem",

    -not sufficient info’s,

    -nothing of all that.

    That really eagers me hard.

    Don't they have parents, friends or colleagues with whom they have to behave?

    Maybe I'm not right?

    Regards

    Andre

    The maintenance had been announced since about three days.

    In these last three days you did not have to work quite urgently?

    Why didn't you read the announcement when you started your work?

    The message was unmistakable!

    Besides, this is not a production environment.

    So what is this nonsense?

    Hi everyone,

    My apologies for not providing enough information. I am trying to access the site https://apex.oracle.com/pls/apex/f?p=4500:1000&p_lang=es but it shows that it has been under maintenance for more than 12 hours. Unfortunately I did not see the announcement that you indicate, it said for how long the site would be down?

    Thank you.

    Thanks @Mike Kutz,

    I appreciate your help. In my case it is a development site, but I will consider having an Oracle cloud backup for situations like this.

    Thank you

    Hi there,

    just saw this on Twitter, seems they underestimated the time line a bit...
