Information in this document applies to any platform.


1. Apex 5.0.3 in DB with no invalids.

2. APEX_LISTENER and APEX_REST_PUBLIC_USER schemas in place.

5. Regular apex images show up okay and http://machine:port/i/apex_version.txt shows - 5.0.3.

6. ords log shows:

which matches the problem described in <Note 2004672.1> Receive "There are Issues with the Configuration of The Static Files..." After Upgrading to APEX 5.0

However, all steps in in the note fail to resolve the issue.
