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…

Sweet!

  1. As every upgrade before it then.

    BUT

    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. 😒

  3. i get this error after upgrad while loading page

    The files for version 5.0.4.00.12 have been loaded, but 18.2.0.00.12 is expected. Please verify that you have copied the images directory to your application server as instructed in the Installation Guide.
