Re: Really Confused about Apex, 11g and Http

11g uses embedded plsql gateway (it is available on 10g as well, however not supported with Apex) . It acts like apache within database itself, so, no need to have an additional web server. Of course, not all directives of full webserver are implemented, but for ApEx it is enough. You have an plsql api for querieng/setting listening ports

select dbms_xdb.gethttpport from dual;
select dbms_xdb_getftpport from dual;
exec dbms_xdb.sethttpport(8080);
exec dbms_xdb.setftpport(8021);
You can disable listening on both, if you sets ports to 0. You can read about it more detailed here:

Best regards

Why make things difficult, when it is possible to make them cryptic
and totally illogical, with just a little bit more effort?
