I downloaded 2.1.7 to:
C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 6.0\webapps and extracted it with winzip, to the same dir, and renamed to jforum.

It shows in tomcat manager as: /jforum JForum - Powering Communities

But when i hit the "Start" button in tomcat manager, i get this error:
Message: FAIL - Application at context path /jforum could not be started

anyone know what i missed in the installation?

C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 6.0\webapps\jforum is the location to my jforum root dir.

Apache Tomcat 6.0.9 Server
jre1.5.0_11
MySQL Server 5.2

Error log in tomcat:


another edit: it works fine with same setup and jforum 2.1.6 :roll:

ClassNotFound when the class is obviously in the classpath (i.e., in the WEB-INF/classes/net/jforum directory) is usually either a ClassLoader security issue or a missing jar.

Looking at the code for ForumSessionListener I see that it uses log4j. This might be the problem. Make sure the log4j*.jar is in the WEB-INF/lib directory.

Unfortulatelly, the current 2.1.7 release misses the log4j-jar. We'll release a second version that includes it.
