hi buddies,
Now i am preparing to install jforum.
but i dont know how to register it in web server.
i use redhat 5, apache.
even more how to write a config file for apache server.
I just tried to edit /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf as below,

Alias /jforum/ "/root/jforum/jforum/"
<Directory "/root/jforum/jforum/">
Options Indexes MultiViews
AllowOverride None
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
</Directory>

but .... Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /jforum/install.jsp on this server.

i think this is a tiny issue for u,
it will be appreciated if any postes.
Thanks ahead!

I think you are missing a requirement here. jForum is a Java based web application. As such, you need "Java servlet container" (some times referred to as a J2EE server), for it to in. This is separate from the Apache HTTP server.

That said, there are a wide variety of both open source and commercial servlet containers available. Two of the most popular for Linux are the Apache.org Tomcat server and RedHat's JBOSS server. IMHO, if you don't need to deal with complex enterprise Java beans, Tomcat's the way to go.

So, you're first step in setting up jForum is to get Tomcat (or whatever) installed and working on your box. Then install jForum into this server, using the servlet container's local web front end (e.g. http://localhost:8080/jForum for Tomcat).

Once that is up and running, there are a variety of ways to link the servlet container to your Apache HTTP server. E.g., with TC, you can use a "JK" connector or use a set of proxy rules to "re-write" URLs and connect to TC.
