    Oracle Apex installation and configuration issue.

    Naeem Akhtar
      Hi,

      Following are the details of my system.

      O.S Windows 7 64bit
      Database 11 g R2
      apex ver 4.1.1
      listener : apex stand alone listener
      jdk 6 u 26


      I create tablespace named apex.

      install apex using @apexins apex apex temp /images/

      change apex admin password.

      set http port to 0 with procedure.

      execute acl script.

      start apex standalone listener by following command.


      "C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_25\bin\java" -Dapex.home=C:\apex_temp -Dapex.port=8081 -Dapex.images=C:\oracle\db11g\product\11.2.0\dbhome_1\apex\images -jar C:\oracle\listener\apex.war

      configure listener with database.


      After these things I am unable to login to apex.

      when I browser the page.

      localhost:8081/apex

      nothing happen (blank page)


      I also copy the images from apex extracted folder to apex directory under database but no success.

      I also execute apexldimage script and that script executed successfully but no success.

      I do lot of search from internet and do the different workout mentions on either otn etc but no success.


      Please help me to get rid of this issue.

      Thanks

          Hi,

          thanks to your complete report it seems easy to get a grip on your problem:
          install apex using @apexins apex apex temp /images/
          That's basically okay, but you can't use this images prefix with APEX Listener in Standalone Mode. The embedded web container used (currently) supports only a static context for both APEX ( +/apex/+ ) and the images ( +/i/+ - which is the default images prefix, by the way).
          I also execute apexldimage script and that script executed successfully but no success.
          That's not surprising, because this content is just useful when using the Embedded PL/SQL Gateway (EPG) to access your APEX. APEX Listener will use the contents of the directory you've defined with
          -Dapex.images=C:\oracle\db11g\product\11.2.0\dbhome_1\apex\images
          So, you either have one of the following two options:
          1) change the images prefix of your APEX instance (execute the script reset_image_prefix.sql in the utilities directory of your APEX installation package using sqlplus as sys)
          2) put a proxy in front of your APEX Listener that reverse proxies the +/apex/+ context and either servers +/images/+ or proxies it to the +/i/+ context of APEX Listener

          I'd recommend option 1)
