## Create PDB for APEX 21

If you are using multitenant architecture, then create a PDB to install Oracle APEX 21.

I generally use Database configuration assiatant to create PDB.

## Installation

Now we are ready for our fevorite command using @apexins.sql.

We can take reference from our previous blog post [How to Install APEX in Oracle 19 C](

@apexins.sql SYSAUX SYSAUX TEMP /i/

This will install the APEX in the existing selected PDB.

## Loading Images

In APEX 21, Oracle has desupported the EPG. Now we have get the ORDS installed and reference the images to "/i/". About this i had a tweet thread with [Dimitri](

- [EPG is desupported](

[Download ORDS](

Download the ORDS from above link and extract in desired location. As we are done with the extraction process, we can start creating users for ORDS installation.

Run apex_rest_config.sql to create rest users.

Install the ORDS using below command using Jar file.
