    Oracle 10g XE

    Hi,

    I installed Oracle 10g Express edition on my laptop for educational purpose. I lost the administrator password and unable to login through the login page.

    Is there a way to reset/receover the password without uninstalling or do I have to reinstall again.

    Thanks
    Ram

    What do you mean you lost the administrator password?

    Just in case try this:
    set your ORACLE_HOME and ORACLE_SID, then...
    sqlplus /nolog
    conn sys as sysdba
    press Enter when asked for the password

    Thanks. I was able to login as mentioned below. I am not sure how to proceed further.

    Two things I want to rectify:

    1. when I installed the default user created was system. How to reset the password for this user. Now when I try to login, it says the account is locked.

    2. The URL http://127.0.0.1:8080/apex does not open up the database page. How to rectify it. I have tried with localhost:8080 also in the url.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    1.
    sql>conn / as sysdba;
    provide password ur password.
    sql>alter user identified by

    2.
    start your database.
    command prompt: netstat -an | find "TCP"
    check for the ip and port, status.
    ping the ip address.

    if not, change the port:8080
    sql>exec dbms_xdb.sethttpport(8090);
    sql>exec dbms_xdb.setlistenerlocalaccess(true);<-- should be true
    now: 127.0.0.1:8090
    try doing these, may work.

    cheers!

    If your account is locked,unlock it.

    connect as sys user, then

    alter user system account unlock;

    if you need to change the password,do it like the above poster said..

    alter user system identified by ;
