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.
org.hsqldb.jdbcDriver"

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?

You can't let parameter blank...

You must check Database Server Hostname, Database Port etc... Because naturally, jforum use database ;)

I'm following right behind itm, running into the same problems, but in an OS X installation.

So the install instructions are also incorrect ? Do you know which ones ?

Do you know who edits the web pages and if there is a way of helping correct some of the mistakes ?

Thanks,
