Logging In To Oracle Application Express Administration Services

Instance administrators are responsible for managing an entire Oracle Application Express instance. To perform these tasks, an Instance administrator logs in to the Oracle Application Express Administration Services application.

To log in to Oracle Application Express Administration Services:

  1. In a Web browser, navigate to the Oracle Application Express Administration Services application. By default, Oracle Application Express Administration Services installs to the following location:

    • If your setup uses the embedded PL/SQL gateway, go to:

      http://hostname:port/apex/apex_admin
      

      Where:

      • hostname is the name of the system where Oracle XML DB HTTP Server is installed.

      • port is the port number assigned to Oracle XML DB HTTP Server. In a default installation, this number is 8080. See "Verifying the Oracle XML DB HTTP Server Port" in Oracle Application Express Application Builder User's Guide.

      • apex is the database access descriptor (DAD) defined in the configuration file.

        For users who have upgraded from earlier releases, or who have a custom configuration, this value may be htmlb or something else. Verify your DAD with your Instance administrator.

    • If your setup uses the Oracle Application Express Listener, go to:

      http://hostname:port/apex/apex_admin
      

      Where:

      • hostname is the name of the system where Oracle HTTP Server is installed.

      • port is the port number assigned to Oracle HTTP Server. In a default installation, for Oracle WebLogic Server this number is 7001, in OC4J this number is 8888, and in Oracle Glassfish Server this number is 8080. These defaults are correct at the time of the writing of this document. Please review the related Web server documentation for the latest default port if necessary.

      • apex is the mount point defined in the Web Server configuration file.

    • If your setup uses Apache and mod_plsql, go to:

      http://hostname:port/pls/apex/apex_admin
      

      Where:

      • hostname is the name of the system where Oracle HTTP Server is installed.

      • port is the port number assigned to Oracle HTTP Server. In a default installation, this number is 7777. You can find information about your Oracle HTTP Server installation's port number from either of the following files:

        ORACLE_BASE\ORACLE_HOME\install\portlist.ini
        ORACLE_BASE\ORACLE_HTTPSERVER_HOME\Apache\Apache\conf\httpd.conf
        

        Be aware that if you change a port number, it is not updated in the portlist.ini file. You can only rely on this file immediately after installation.

      • pls is the indicator to use the mod_plsql cartridge.

      • apex is the database access descriptor (DAD) defined in the mod_plsql configuration file.

        For users who have upgraded from earlier releases, or who have a custom configuration, this value may be htmldb or something else. Verify your DAD with your Instance administrator.

    The Login page appears.

  2. In Username, enter admin.

    Tip:

    admin is the default Instance administrator account. To create additional Instance administrator accounts, see "Creating New User Accounts"
  3. In Password, enter the Instance administrator account password you specified when you installed Oracle Application Express.

  4. Click Login.

    Oracle Application Express Administration Services appears.
