In one of my recent blogs I’ve described how you can use Nginx as a reverse proxy to assign your custom domain name to the Oracle Apex on Autonomous database. But you still use the default ORDS managed by Oracle. What if you want to change some ORDS parameters? For example you might decide to change the “low” type of connection to “high” or “medium”.

What we are going to use is a virtual machine with a Nginx web server serving as a reverse proxy to your Apex application created on the Oracle Autonomous database.Continue reading “Oracle Apex on ATP with custom domain”
