I was able to download and install JForum perfectly on a default install of Tomcat, however, in our production environment, the initial redirect results in a 404 error.
After reading through the forum posts, I have added a JkMount so that *.page gets served up by tomcat, however, once that happens, Tomcat then serves up the 404 page instead of Apache.
It's kind of messed up, but this is kind of a custom install of Tomcat that does not ahave a webapps dir, but is mapped to a diiferent directory. Is there something that I need to set up in a context.xml file that referes to the app? If, so, can you post a copy of what it might lookl like, since I'm not a sysadmin....
