Guide to Install ORALCE APEX with HTTP Server 1. Install Http server from ORACLE Companion CD.

Install it on other than Oracle database home like /rdbms/app/oracle/product/httpserver. Select http server only (don’t select HTML DB) when system asks during the installation. The system will give linking error during installation; select ‘Continue’ on that error. After installation run from httpserver home i.e. /rdbms/app/oracle/product/httpserver as root user. After this installation, browse http://<server ip>:<http port default 7777> from any PC; if Oracle HTTP server welcome page is appeared then it means http server is installed successfully. Add export ORACLE_HTTPSERVER_HOME= /rdbms/app/oracle/product/httpserver in .bash_profile of oracle user. Moreover, add the following lines in the PATH variable of .bash_Profile: :$ORACLE_HTTPSERVER_HOME/bin:$ ORACLE_HTTPSERVER_HOME/opmn/bin 2. Stop httpserver from ORACLE_HTTPSERVER_HOME/opmn/bin as opmnctl stopall 3. Unzip apex*.zip on any file system of the server ( We extracted it in /freespace) 4. Execute owainst.sql from apex/owa directory under SYS user. Check the version after it that should be or higher by select owa_util.get_vesion from dual; Run rdbms/admin/utlrp.sql from oracle home on the safer side afterwards. 5. Create tablespace for apex users and files. Create tablespace myapx datafile ‘/mydbs2/oradata/mysys/MYAPX.dbf’ size 200M autoextend on extent management local segment space management auto online; 6. Change directory to apex (on the file system at where the apex is unzipped like /myspace/apex). Take SQL session from SYS user and then run: @apexins MYAPX MYAPX TEMP /i/ 7. After the completion of apexins.sql script, execute apxchpwd .sql to change the password of apex ADMIN account. Set the desired password when the system prompts for it. 8. Restart http server from ORACLE_HTTPSERVER_HOME/opmn/bin as opmnctl startall 9. Unlock APEX_PUBLIC_USER account by SYS user. Alter user APEX_PUBLIC_USER account unlock; 10. Change the password of APEX_PUBLIC_USER by SYS user. Alter user APEX_PUBLIC_USER identified by <passowrd>; 11. Increase the JOB_QUEUE_PROCESSES by SYS user, if it is less than 20. Alter system set JOB_QUEUE_PROCESSES = 50; To check this parameter run: select value from v$parameter where name = ‘job_queue_processes’; 12. Copy the images directory to correct location (from the file system where apex is unzipped like /myspace/apex). cp -rf /myspace/apex/images ORACLE_HTTPSERVER_HOME/Apache 13. Configure the dads.conf file located at ORACLE_HTTPSERVER_HOME/Apache/modplsql/conf. Copy the following contents in this file and then modify the parameter accordingly: Page 1 of 2
