Hi Bill,1 person found this helpful
I have copied the images directory from $ORACLE_HOME/apex/images to /u01/app/glassfish3/glassfish/domains/domain1/docroot/i.Are you sure these are the images that belong to APEX 4.2? If not, this would explain why you see a blank page with "hidden" content in it...
Try to look up a file named "apex_version.txt" in +/u01/app/glassfish3/glassfish/domains/domain1/docroot/i+ or even call it through your GlassFish and see the response: http://server:8080/i/apex_version.txt
If it's not 4.2, just copy the images from your APEX 4.2 installation package instead and everything should work as expected.
Excellent. Thanks for the quick response. Here is what I've found.
The images directory has no apex_version.txt in it. Since I've been fairly certain my images were the problem, I've repeated the steps to copy them several times I have, therefore, and i_OLD folder, which was the first iteration of my efforts, and that folder contains an apex_version.txt that indicates 4.1.1.
Obviously, I have the wrong images folder both under $ORACLE_HOME/apex, and also under docroot/i.
I installed Apex 4.2 from p14777994_420_Generic.zip, if memory serves. I'm looking at the files included in that, and I can't find the images directory that I would have originally copied. Does the install automatically update the $ORACLE_HOME/apex/images directory (I was upgrading from 3.2 to 4.2) during the upgrade, or is there a step to copy them from the patch directories to $ORACLE_HOME/apex? If so, I don't see that step.
What am I missing?
OK... now that I've had my coffee I'm reviewing this and realized somethings. I don't know where I got that patch p14777994_420_Generic.zip. It is not listed on the Apex downloads page, where the normal APEX_4.2.zip file is shown. I can't find that file on my server, so now I'm uncertain WHAT I installed from. I had an Evernote disaster a couple of days ago which wiped out all my notes for this project, so I'm trying to figure out what I've down from memory.
I'm thinking I need to reinstall APEX 4.2 from the correct install media, just to be sure. Can I just reinstall overtop of whatever I've currently got installed?
My stupidity knows no bounds. I reinstalled correctly, and this is working now.
Does the install automatically update the $ORACLE_HOME/apex/images directoryNo. You need to do this manually.
Just a side note: This location is usually used for the images that correspond to the APEX version that shipped with your database. Of course, you can reuse it to store them after an update, but unless the web server that hosts your APEX is somehow linked to that directory, you won't need these images there.
I don't know where I got that patch p14777994_420_Generic.zip.Sounds like a (modified) version of what you get on support.oracle.com ("Metalink"). modified because usually the official patch packages also contain the images, at least if the patch is an upgrade package.
I reinstalled correctly, and this is working now.Great to hear that! Have fun with APEX 4.2 using APEX Listener!
