I have a Godaddy.com Delux Linux Hosting account and want to install JForum there.
I am given a shared Tomcat server somewhere. In my directory, the only thing that I can do is to copy all the code for the web application over (e.g. WEB-INF). I have no access to server.xml and cannot restart the sever.
For those who have successfully installed JForum there, I am wondering how this actually works. How JForum is registered with the server? Do you mind giving me some instruction of how to install JForum there?
That's actually exactly what I did. I copied all the content from JForumXXXX to the space that is assigned to me. Everything that I copied is from the JForumXXXX directory of my own tomcat. (They all worked in my own Window XP + Tomcat enviroment.) However, after they are moved to my space in the hosting server, nothing works anymore. I got a 404 error from tomcat stating that it cannot find *.page. (Please access www.ucchinese.net to see the error.) That means the servlet is not working. (I have no access to server.xml and cannot restart tomcat in the host server)
I am wondering why. Do I have to ask the Apache administrator to map *.page request? Please give me some idea. Thanks.
Will they allow everything to go to Tomcat? My virtual host in Apache uses:
that forwards everything to Tomcat for this VirtualHost. I've not had any problems with it. The issue that a shared host will have is that they will have to install mod_jk into Apache. They may not want to do that.
So I have to ask - what would you be willing to pay for JForum hosting? I'm running 3 forums on my dedicated server and adding another one wouldn't be to bad. Sorry Rafael - I'm not trying to drum up business but it would be interesting to see how many people would be interested in having JForum hosted for them.
