Hi there

I try to setup a Oracle DB an Application Express. Facts:

Server: Windows Server 2008 R2 (64b)
OracleDB: 11gR2
Apex: 4.2

We worked with different Manuals and Walktroughs but now we have a Little Problem and hope for an Input from a pro.

Step 1:

START LISTENER
-------------------------------------------------------------

INFO: http://localhost:8080/apex gestartet.

Step 2

Internet Explorer: http://localhost:8080/apex

After a few seconds, the tab in de browser change his Name to "Application Express Login" but the browser just displays a blank page. At time of loading the page, in cmd the java command run with content like
"SCHWERWIEGEND: The pool named: Apex_al is not correctly configured, error: The Network Adapter could not establish a connetion.
ConnectionPoolException [error=BAD_CONFIGURATION]

Step 3

Internet Explorer: http://localhost:8080/apex/listenerconfigure

Now i receive a 404 - Not Found

Have anyone a idea whats the Problem with our configuration...

Have a nice Weekend guys and thank you for all your Support :-)

    Connecting to Apex after a new install can be a challenge.

    Which listener are you using?

    Some things to check:
    * Make sure you are using the correct URL for your listener
    * Make sure the imagaes were loaded correctly (and if applicable they are referenced properly from the httpd.conf file)
    * if applicable make sure the tnsnames listner has been started
    * if applicable make sure the http (or whatever) listener has been started
    * if applicable make sure the httpd.conf file (or whatver it is called now) has been configured correctly. This can be hard because the http listner (if you are using it) creates multiple copies
    * Make sure you are using a supported version of PL/SQL
    * Walk through the installation instructions very carefully looking for steps you might have missed

    Good luck!

    Hello,

    I had the same configuration and the same problem ...

    You have to point the image folder of APEX installation to the static folder of listener.

    When you run the "java -jar apex.war" for the first time you are getting some configuration questions. The tricky one is at the end.

    Enter the APEX static resources location or Enter to skip:/ opt/oracle/app/oracle/apex/images (You need to answer with the path to the image folder inside the APEX installation.)

    I hope that this will help!

    GM

    PS. APEX installation folder is the folder you unzip the apex zip that you download from oracle... (I was looking for that also...)

    You need to read the installation guide that comes with your version of the listener.

    Step 1:

    START LISTENER
    C:\Temp\Oracle\apex_listener.2.0.0.268.17.04>java -jar apex.war
    Step 2

    Internet Explorer: http://localhost:8080/apex

    After a few seconds, the tab in de browser change his Name to "Application Express Login" but the browser just displays a blank page.
    Check the page 'source' - there is probably HTML code there, mainly referring to Javascript and images that are not being displayed? This indicates that you haven't followed the steps referring to loading images.
    Step 3

    Internet Explorer: http://localhost:8080/apex/listenerconfigure
    This indicates that you are reading the wrong guide - APEX listener doesn't have a listenerConfigure page from version 2 onwards. You configure the listener from the command line or SQLDeveloper.
