I get the error message "The requested resource () is not available." after JForum completes the installation & tries to redirect to the forum home.

I'm running 2.1.6 on Tomcat 5.5.16. I can find no other log error outputs.

Would this be a simple configuration issue or a conflict with 5.5.16?

Thank you -

There are some issues with Tomcat 5.5.x. We're trying to find out what causes the problem and fix it until version 2.1.7

I have tried installing with 5.5.15, 5.5.16 and also 5.0.28, and I have this problem with all versions, with JForum 2.1.6. Is this version even installable at all? Which versions are recommended in thie combination?

I am using jdk1.5.0_06 on Windows Server 2003.

Have now tried with Tomcat 4.1.31, as well as JDK 1.4.2_11. This install just doesn't work! No errors are reported in the logs, just the 404.

Further info: using MySQL Version: 5.0.19-nt - however, no database errors are reported.

I found the problem. JForum has a bug with respect to non-default servlet context mappings. The servlet runs correctly when used via "auto-context" mode (dropping zip straight into webapps directory) but fails when mapped manually via a tomcat Context declaration in server.xml as follows:


<Context docBase="E:\Antranig\ponder.org\JForum-2.1.6" path="/rsf/forums">
</Context>


The mapping works just long enough to allow the installer to finish, but fails when the app proper starts up.

Well come on - it is *possible* to get up and running, even if it has a bug! Really you should be pleased there are people prepared to produce OS software, since if it was up to Microsoft you would have to *PAY*... :P

Good working on supplying a java forum btw, sorry it didnt work this time.
I'm not that much in a hurry anyway, just wanted to make it work today. I'm a little bitter I had to waste my day like that since I dont have alot of freetime.
It will prop work next time I try..

Yes - the key is i) do not use Tomcat 5.5.16 (apparently all previous versions are fine - I had success with 5.5.15) and ii) do not use an explicit context mapping (i.e. follow the instructions and just put the zip contents in their own directory inside webapps). Don't worry, I spent 6 hours trying to get this working myself :P Indeed I am similarly short of free time....

What do you mean "put the zip contents in their own dir" ? I've read that before just dont know what they mean. I've unzipped, and put the folder in webapps

It was stated that tomcat 5.5.16 has a bug that prevents many applications of working correctly.

In other words: Do not use Tomcat 5.5.16

Either downgrade the version or wait for 5.5.17

Although this was a problem introduced by Tomcat, I made a little workaround for it, that will be available on JForum 2.1.7

Ha ha ha! I was beating my head against the wall on the same bug until I found this helpful thread. I just now tried with Tomcat 5.5.17 beta and now it gets to the main page. Now I can start playing with it.

Here's my setup and what I did:

Java 1.5
Suse Linux
Tomcat 5.5.17 beta
JForum 2.1.6

I just untarred the Tomcat, unzipped JForum, put JForum into the webapps directory, renamed jforum-2..... to simply "forum" and now I can get to the forum at localhost:8080/forum

It's cool!

It is outrageous to me that so much of the Web is being built and run on such broken things as PHP. JForum looks cool. Also the BSD license is great. My biz may make some mods which might not be returned to the source code, but if we do that and make money from it we will contribute bucks instead of code, I promise that. So the BSD license is great for us, and we promise not to be bad about it like the recent news over OpenSSH.

Ok, here's a new JForum site:

http://californiaccw.org

No activity yet, just got it set up today. It's powered by Tomcat 5.5.17beta.

I took the link out, because I want to keep the site navigation as simple as possible, but I did put a big link right on the main page (the home page), in the "special thanks" section.

If / when this site starts getting ad revenue, I promise that 10% of it, up to $1,000, will be donated to the JForum developers. After that we might want to retain the JForum developers for consultation, also.

This is a bug of version 5.5.16, and already fixed in 5.5.17. Anyway, the CVS version has a fix similar to the code you put

Is this bug also in Apache Tomcat/5.0.28? I think so, since my production server, an Apache Tomcat/5.0.28 server, reports the "requested resource () is not available" error as well. Though I did not find the bug on my test platform, which is running apache 5.5. Switching to a newer apache is not so easy though on a production server, so I'll have a look at the work around and report what I found out.

Hm, that seems to be something different. What URL are you trying to access when you get this error?
