Hi,

I've downloaded the latest version 2.1.7 and tried installing it according to the instructions Here but I keep getting a "HTTP Status 404 - /jforum/forums/list.page" error. I was trying to upgrade from my existing 2.1.6 version but decided to try a fresh new install. The fresh install does not work either.

I've unzipped the file and renamed the folder "jforum-2.1.7" to "jforum" and copied that folder into the %TOMCAT_HOME%\webapps folder where it belongs. I can do this with my old version of 2.1.6 and it works just fine but it will not work with the new version.

Here's my system configurations.
Tomcat 5.5.20
Java JDK 1.5.0_09
MySQL 5.0


Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks.

I have the same problem.

The version 2.1.6 runs good.

It's missing some lib files. Just copy from %JFORUM_SOURCE%/WEB-INF/lib to ur %JFORUM_PATH%/WEB-INF/lib.
It'll work.
Good luck!

Which files are missing in the 2.1.7-zip-archive?

Thanks.

I've copied the lib folder and it is now at least recognizing that there is an application at that location but another exception is comming up.

This shouldn't be that hard for a brand new install.

I'm getting the same results. This is my first installation of jforum. I have it configured and running under Tomcat.

When I try to load the http://www.mydomain.com/forum/ URL, I get



I tried copying the lib folder from the jforum-2.1.7-src folder, but that didn't have any effect. I've reloaded the application and restarted Tomcat.

Should I try a manual installation?

Is it possible to install 2.1.6 instead? I couldn't find anywhere that I could download older versions. I'm leery of trying out the beta at this point.

Tried the manual installation, following the directions at http://www.jforum.net/install_no_wizard.jsp

JForum is still dead. As soon as I go to the main URL I now get



I've double-checked all of the properties in WEB-INF/config/database/mysql/mysql.properties and they all look correct (most of them are copied from another webapp that is accessing the data using the same connection address just fine).

Any suggestions?

Just to follow up ...

I seem to have JForum installed and running now. I erased the entire previous install and started over, this time simplifying the installation by setting up JForum in its own domain. However, there were still a few bumps along the road:

Apache 1.3 + Tomcat 4.1 + MySQL 4.1

- the distribution archive jforum-2.1.7.zip is missing the log4j-1.2.12.jar in lib. Per the previous suggestion in this thread, I copied it from jforum-2.1.7-src.

- This is hosted under Apache. I skirted around Apache by creating a virtual host for my forum and used the proxy directive to redirect all Apache requests to Tomcat

This results in the port number getting inserted into the JForum URLs. I'd like to eliminate this if possible.

- The install wizard didn't work, but the manual installation did.

So far, things seem to be running OK. I haven't done much, except play around with the admin interface and send myself some test messages. But so far, so good!

The downloads are fixed so that they include log4j again.
