Last updated on JANUARY 30, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Application Express (APEX) - Version 3.0.1 and later
Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version and later
Oracle Database Backup Service - Version N/A and later
Gen 1 Exadata Cloud at Customer (Oracle Exadata Database Cloud Machine) - Version N/A and later
Oracle Database Cloud Exadata Service - Version N/A and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When APEX is installed and configured with the Enterprise PL/SQL Gateway (EPG), the XDB Login page may be presented when the APEX URL is entered:


For IE: The server servername at XDB requires a user name and password.

For Firefox: A username and password are being requested by http://<hostname>:<Portno>. The site says "XDB"

When the DAD is configured correctly, this URL takes you directly to the APEX login page. If the XDB Login page is presented, this indicates that there is a configuration error related to the APEX DAD. Specifically, this error indicates that the APEX DAD is not able to successfully login to the database.

This document discusses the troubleshooting steps that can be taken to diagnose the problem with the APEX DAD configuration in the EPG.
