Hey everyone,

I'm having some major problems installing jforum. I'm sure it's just me and not the app itself.

There path where I installed the forum is: http://latinsonline.com/forum/jforum

In the SystemsGlobals.properties file I set the following information:

forum.link = http://localhost:8080/forum/jforum
homepage.link = http://localhost:8080


Does it need to go in port 8080 or can I just set that to http://latinsonline.com/forum/jforum?

I set up the database info correctly in mysql.properties file.

If I go to http://latinsonline.com:8080/forum/jforum I don't get anything. Doesn't work either for http://latinsonline.com:8080/forum/jforum/install.jsp - I get a bunch of error messages.

Any idea what to do?

Thanks,

David

In your install, looks like you don't need the :8080 port specified.

Here is your error message from http://www.latinsonline.com/forum/jforum/forums/list.page:

Since you are getting SQL exception errors, are you sure your MySQL properties are set correctly?

I also wouldn't use "localhost" in your URLs, use your domain name.

I believe it's actually a Tomcat issue.

How do I get the app listed in Tomcat?

Look about 4 posts down at this thread titled "How to register App": https://coderanch.com/t/577279

JForum even has a "search" function! ;-)

Yeah, I had done a Search and saw that post.

I'm having trouble getting to Tomcat through cPanel.
