Hi Friendz.

I am unable to connect to localhost for apex 4.2 version.

I am getting error "ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED" when i ran local host on chrom. ( http://localhost:8080/apex/apex_admin )
This site can’t be reached

localhost refused to connect.
Search Google for localhost 8080 apex admin

Please assist.

- embedded plsql gateway
