How to change the default http port of Oracle's administration webinterface

The default port in Oracle's Database Express Edition (oracle-xe) is set to 8080. You can change the default port value to e.g. 1080 by issuing the following command:

begin
dbms_xdb.sethttpport('1080');
end;


A convenient way to commit this alteration to the database, is to enter this command into the textarea, you can find under Home > SQL > SQL Commands in Oracle's administrative webinterface.

Afterwards you can reach the administration interface under http://localhost:1080/apex.
