ORDS was unable to make a connection to the database. This can occur if the database is unavailable, the maximum number of sessions has been reached or the pool is not correctly configured. The connection pool named: |default|lo| had the following error(s): ORA-28001: the password has expired"

The bit you need to pay attention to is here:

ORA-28001: the password has expired

The password for your database user is no longer valid! You need to reset it.
