Apex 4.0.1 installation / XDB username & password Required

Monday, October 25, 2010

When following the installation manual for apex 4.0.1 and installing Apex 4.0.1 with the embedded PL/SQL Gateway, a wrong url is specified in the Apex installation documentation.

When following the installation manual for apex 4.0.1 and installing Apex 4.0.1 with the embedded PL/SQL Gateway and you want to connect the first time to create a workspace with the url as supplied in the manual http://hostname:port/pls/apex/apex_admin , you will get a request from the XDB for a Username and a Password.
This url is wrong and should be http://hostname:port/apex/apex_admin .

Because we are using the EPG and have configured it with apex_epg_config.sql we do not use a DAD and the /pls is not applicable for our use.
