alter user APEX_LISTENER account unlock identified by yourpassword
Then try again.
Thanks for your reply Xilan - I have done this multiple times but everytime I go to an application and it tried to load an image/theme-roller CSS the account locks. It also locks when I retry the Employees 'GET' method in the SQL Workshop/Restful Services.
Is the config updated with the password? Something is probably attempting to connect with bad passwords which is what is causing the db to lock the account.
For the ORA-01017 , are you able to login in SQL*Plus using APEX_REST_PUBLIC_USER and its password ? Make sure you can login in SQL*Plus, then try configuring ORDS again using the correct password.
