So then I reread the documentation and it says that "/tmp" should be where you unzipped apex to (for me this is /u01/stage/apex). So Then I tried the command above again with that instead, but received the same error about FILEOPEN failed. That is the only thing that I can think of that could be failing this.The statement that the load image script is trying to run is this:
So make sure that the argument you pass to the script will result in a correct path to the actual location of the unzipped files. So I think in your case the argument should be "/u01/stage" so that the full path will be expanded to "/u01/stage/apex/images" by the script.
create directory APEX_IMAGES as '&1/apex/images';
ahh... much better now. I see graphics!!!
Most of the documentation refers to the root of the directory that you unzipped (/u01/stage/apex/, for example). But then that one SQL references /u01/stage. I can see now, after re-reading the documentation yet again, that it certainly does mean /u01/stage. But in any case, thank you for your help. I've changed my admin password and am now on my way to figuring out how to convert my spreadsheets to nice apex applications :)
Thanks again for your help.
