Which Apex am I logging into?

September 8, 2007

I’ve got two computers at home both running Apex, and when I log into Apex the page looks exactly the same – except for the IP address in the URL, which is just slightly different. If you’re forgetful like me it’s easy to confuse which machine I’m logged in to. Here’s a tip:

Login to apex_admin on each machine in turn and click Manage Service, then Messages. Then select a Custom Message for the Login Message and/or a System Message, and enter the name of the machine, or some other message that will remind you which machine it is. The message will be shown whenever you see the login screen, and when you login to Apex.

If you find the text isn’t visible enough, you can insert HTML into the message, e.g. <B>Development</B>.
