Installing Theme images into Oracle APEX 4.2.2

I am looking at themes for Apex (eg http://www.apex-designers.com/examples.html)

neither the read_me file nor numerous forums are giving me a great deal of direction when it comes to up loading the images for same. Accessing //127.0.0.1:8080/i/ in the environment I am in is proving difficult (fairly tight cloud environment), but then there is nothing in this location to start with so I am even wondering if this is still the correct location in this latest version of Apex!? The theme itself doesn't seem to be too much bother, just the images!!

Any pointers as to how one gets themes' images into APEX4.2.2 ??

thanks in advance

/i/ is an alias (typically) and relates to a location in your server environment. Check your APEX setup to find out your actual path. If you're running Oracle HTTP server, the alias is typically set up in httpd.conf or dads.conf. If you're running APEX Listener, then the path would be somewhere in the root folder of your container. With the EPG, the images would be stored directly in the database.

thanks for that, FYI this is Apex 4.2.2 on Oracle XE, so have been trying to connect via FTP.

think it might have had something to do with the FTP client I was using, downloaded filezilla and bingo connected no probs.

however I expected to see an "i" folder, I get three top level folders, Home, Public & Sys and nothing obvious for themes/images there under. So am I connecting as the wrong user or something??

Sorry this is not my forte (yet), and really my first stab at themes....

regards

I'm a bit concerned about two things:
1. You don't get anything to display under //127.0.0.1:8080/i/
2. You don't have an images folder when you connect via FTP

It sounds like your installation was not successful for whatever reason.  

I suggest you reinstall APEX and follow the instructions exactly. Another possibility would be to use the reset_image_prefix.sql script (do a search in the apex folder) to change the image prefix, but this probably won't be sufficient if your images didn't install correctly the first time.

thanks for this, I was having similar thoughts (as you do) in the wee small hours the other night! my only problem, I have another Oracle XE/apex instance (apex 4.0.2), and just tried FTPing to it, it also  shows only those folders...

I'll do a free 4.2.3 and see how it looks, very strange indeed !!
