I've tried both the automatic installation and the manual installation, and I get the same result with either. I even tried creating my own WAR file from the contents of the ZIP.
I'm using MySQL 4.1.20 with Tomcat 5.5.20. My web browser is Opera 9.02.
Installation appears to go smoothly, but when I start adding categories and forums, they don't show up afterwards! The new forums do not show up in the Forum Index unless I'm logged out, and they don't show up anywhere in the Forums and Categories sections of the Admin panel, but they do show up in the lists of forums/categories available in the Permissions pages for user groups.
Additionally, some of the settings in the Configuration page don't seem to "stick" after I've set them.
I'm at a complete loss as to what's going on,.
On a side note, there appear to be several errors in your CSS markups (which Opera is all too happy to complain about every time I load a page). [originally posted on jforum.net by REggert]
I think I've found the problem. It looks like adminForums/list.page and adminCategories/list.page aren't setting appropriate "Expires" HTTP headers, causing my browser to use its cached copies of the pages instead of getting the latest list of forums/categories from the server. Right-clicking on either the Forums or Categories link and opening it in a separate tab and then clicking "Reload" on the new tab causes the new forums to show up.
