Sorry for this really stupid question.

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?

Thanks.

Usually, all you have to do is to copy all contents from the JForum-xxx directory and paste into your root web directory.

Of course you'll have to first merge the WEB-INF/web.xml file with you current one, if you have.

Thanks for the reply.

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.

If there is Apache in front of Tomcat, then yes, you should ask them to map *.page AND /dwr/* to your Tomcat

Oh, that's sooo bad

Unfortunatelly, JForum requires *.page to work.

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.
