Symptoms

APEX is installed and configured with the Enterprise PL/SQL Gateway (EPG), and ANONYMOUS access to the Oracle XML Database (XDB) repository data had been configured. However, the the XDB Login popup window continous to be presented when the APEX URL is entered:

http://servername:port/apex

The XDB Login popup window DOES NOT appear when the URL is set to non-APEX related address, for example:

http://servername:port/
http://servername:port/sys/schemas/PUBLIC/xmlns.oracle.com/

Looking at the ACL assigned to /images (or /i directory depending on the APEX version), we see that ANONYMOUS is missing the read-properties and read-contents privileges.

Changes

ACL assigned to /images was changed.
