2.2 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 Oracle Application Express Listener, go to:

      http://hostname:port/apex/apex_admin
      

      Where:

      • hostname is the name of the system where Oracle Application Express Listener is installed.

      • port is the port number assigned when configuring the Oracle Application Express Listener. In a default installation, this number is 8080. To learn more, see Oracle Application Express Listener Installation and Configuration Guide.

      • apex is the service name defined when configuring the Oracle Application Express Listener.

    • 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 Protocol Server is installed.

      • port is the port number assigned to HTTP on the Oracle XML DB Protocol Server. In a default installation, this number is 8080. If you are using the Oracle Database 12c multitenant architecture, then each PDB will have a distinct port number. See "Verifying the Port Assigned to HTTP on the Oracle XML DB Protocol Server" in Oracle Application Express Application Builder User's Guide.

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

      • 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 to Administration.

    Oracle Application Express Administration Services appears.
