APEXblog.nl - Tips and Tricks

About This Blog:
I (Richard Weug) started this blog primary for myself to save all kinds of Apex tips and tricks in one place. To use it as a place to write down how I used some coding in my own projects, but also to copy and paste all kinds of articles I find on the Internet. (So I never have to wonder on what website did I read about??? When I see something interesting I collect the content so I have my own archive/knowlegde base.

Tips & Tricks


Redirect URL to the correct application

Written by Richard Weug. Posted in Tips and Tricks

When you normally enter an ipadres, you will get the website running on that server. With Oracle Apex, you get an 'ORACLE DATABASE 10g EXPRESS EDITION LICENSE AGREEMENT'. How to change this so that users don't have to enter the "apex/f?p=APP_ID"  part of the URL?



Open your site as a web folder in Internet Explorer
tick the box for open as web folder

You will have to login as a DBA account - System is the one I used
You will then see a folder with an index.html file. Edit that and the default page for the site will be changed.

You can add a redirect in the index.html file to go to the page you want to display.


You can still open Web Folders in Explorer. One way to do this on Windows Vista is to
1) Click Start
2) Click My Computer / Exlplorer
3) In the following dialog click Map Network Drive
4) On the Map Network Drive dialog, click "Connect to a Web site that you can use to store your documents and Pictures"
This will pop up the "Welcome to the Add Network Location Wizard".
