I need to preserve the Apex version at 4.01 until the application upgrade, then it will be upgraded to the current version.

The correct answer is "it depends", of course. I suspect that if the webserver is the builtin EPG and there are no external files (custom images, CSS, etc), it *may* work. I'm not sure if APEX 4.x will work in an Oracle 12.1 DB either. If possible, I would upgrade the APEX version first, then migrate to another DB/server.

I've only attempted migrations by using the APEX export/import application, but I'm using ORDS on Tomcat for the web and also external files. As always, test, and YMMV.
