This is caused by jForum checking for a newer version on startup and any time you go to the main admin console.

I think the way to disable this is to override the default setting for the jforum.version.url property in your jforum-custom.config file so that it points to an empty file that it can access locally.

I recently installed JForum 2.1.6 on Windows XP with Tomcat 5.0.28 and J2SE 1.4.2. JForum has been hosted on a PC which is accessible only within LAN and access to internet is blocked by a firewall.

Everything seems to work fine so far, however, I see an exception on the Tomcat console if I try to access Admin Index. And then onwards, I keep getting the same trace after a fixed time interval.

Does anyone know the reason for this? and if there is a way to avoid this?


Thanks in advance,
Amit

Hi Greg,

Thanks for the pointer. jforum.version.url attribute exists in the SystemGlobals.properties file.

I put the latest_version.txt file in the same folder as index.htm and updated the property as below.

jforum.version.url=http://<server>:<port>/<ctx-root>/latest_version.txt

This worked like a charm. Thanks once again,

- Amit
