I need to setup a temporary Oracle XE database on a virtual machine to work as a server, so I choose Feroda as Oracle mainly support RedHat.
So, this is what I did:
a) Downloaded newest version of Fedora and installed it. Now I have Fedora 20 installed.
b) Once in Fedora, I had downloaded
oracle-xe-11.2.0-1.0.x86_64.rpm.zip and unzipped it.
c) I had added my node to
# rpm -ivh downloads/oracle-xe-11.2.0-1.0.x86_64.rpm
f) Choose all default (
8080 as HTTP port,
1521 for listener, my password and start on boot)
h) Then sqlplus system and them
Sqlplus is running fine, but I have 2 problems:
1) When I go in Firefox and run "
localhost:8080", it asks for the login for XDE and APEX. After I enter the login credentials (SYSTEM + password) the browser keeps loading indefenetely the page showing a blank page. So no access do APEX at all.
2) I cannot access Oracle from other nodes on network, either by the browser (like
192.168.0.174:8080/apex doesn´t work), or by SQLPLUS
I have triple checked the listener and it´s up and running. Also the database.
I had tried several stuff, and had to reinstall it all 3 times, but until now no solution at all. I´m fighting that for 2 days now. So, how can I make ORACLE live to my network/browsers ?
Problem ALL related to firewall settings. No Oracle issue at all.
I was using the wrong firewall profile. Opened 8080 and 1521 ports and all fine now.
