Startup APEX with Oracle 11g on AWS

In my previous post I completed creating an Oracle instance from public AMI on AWS. In a following post we configured OEM.
In this post I’ll start APEX on this instance. This instance of Oracle comes preinstalled with APEX.
First we have to reset the password of ADMIN and APEX_PUBLIC_USER and unlock the accounts. The process to reset these are described here.
For resetting password of ADMIN user we must use apxchpwd.sql. For APEX_PUBLIC_USER we can use ALTER USER command.
ADMIN user password change…
