I've downloaded and installed JForum, I can visit it from localhost. Now I want others could visit it. How could I configure 'Forum URL' and 'Web URL'. Thank you.


The "forum URL" is the URL to get to your forum install (i.e. http://yourservername:8080/jforum). The "Web URL" is where the "Back to home page" link points to.

I've downloaded and installed JForum, I can visit it from localhost. Now I want others could visit it. How could I configure 'Forum URL' and 'Web URL'. Thank you.

I should give others a link to visit my forum. What is the link? Is it http://yourservername:8080/jforum?
I've tried "http://yourservername:8080/jforum" in my IE, it works. But I think it's not approciate to poin out the port number.

There are ways around not having to specify the port ... like running Tomcat on port 80 (which you can't do if you are already using a web server on that port). Or you can set up a jk_worker file for Apache to hand off the Tomcat pages.
