APEX 5: Issues with configuration of Static Files (ORDS)

If you're getting this alert window when going to your APEX 5 login screen:


after upgrading from older versions of APEX you're probably missed this paragraph in installation documentation:
When using Oracle REST Data Services as your web listener, static files are served using RESTful service module built into Oracle Application Express. Therefore, you must configure RESTful Services in new installations and in upgrade installations when RESTful Services were not configured in a previous release.

To fix it don't forget to configure Oracle REST Data Services by executing this script @apex_rest_config.sql.
