Hi,
Guys I downloaded the latest version of JForum which was about 11.32 MB. Then I unpacked it into a folder called JForum in my website folder. Then if I try to access http://www.***.com/JForum it redirects to "install/install.page?module=install&action=welcome" and I get a "page cannot be foudn error." I tried searching for the same problem on this forum and although I encountered people with the same problem no solution was suggested in any of the threads. I would be glad if you could also suggest how i can register the servlet context with TOMCAT which I am using for my website. Cheers!

Hi,
I also tried http://www.***.com/JForum/__index.redirect which returned a 404 error and went to the url http://www.***.com/JForum/forums/list.page . How do i even start installing the forum. It is really consuming a lot of time just to get this thing running. Any help will be greatly appreaciated

Where are you trying to install? on your local machine, or in some hosting company?

If in your local machine, just putting the JForum directory in Tomcat's webapp directory will deploy the application, and that's all you need.

If you are going to deploy on a hosting company, you have to check with them if they have apache's httpd in front of Tomcat, and therefore ask to path *.page to your tomcat.
