I've just installed Jforum 2.17b3 on a Windows XP SP2 machine, running a Resin app server (v2.1.9).
I kicked off the jforum installation wizard using the following options:
Database type: HSQLDB
Connection Type: JDBC Data Source Name: blank
Database Server Hostname: blank
Database Port: blank
Database name: blank
Database Username: blank
Database Password: password
Database Encoding: Other
Use Connection Pool: No
Administrator password: password
When I click the "Begin Installation" button I get an error:
"Error while trying to configure the database. Please check if parameters like username, password and host are correct and try again.
I'm a bit of a newbie, and not a Java developer, although I have a familiarity with some Java and app server concepts. Do I need to configure JDBC before attempting to install Jforum? [originally posted on jforum.net by itm]
