My APEX 18.2 upgrade in a nutshell

As always, you should read the Installation/Upgrade manual from top to bottom before upgrading any piece of software, and be aware of all of the pre-requisites and processes.  But for me, my Application Express 18.2 upgrade was as simple as:

  • Download Application Express
  • Unzip to my target location
  • sqlplus / as sysdba
    • SQL> @apexins.sql SYSAUX SYSAUX TEMP /i/
  • Go to my ORDS installation
    • java -jar ords.war validate
  • sqlplus / as sysdba
    • SQL> @apex_rest_config.sql

And voila! A freshly upgraded Application Express in a matter of minutes…

  1. As every upgrade before it then.


    No testing?

    No new images/css/js libraries to be dealt with.

  2. I am installing 18.2 but on running script apex_rest config.sql it tries to grant on old apex_050000 user which I haven’t got as my user is apex_180200, how silly of me to assume consistency of naming. 😒
