The URL /forum/install/install.page is most likely mapped to a servlet, that's why you can't find this directory.

What's your servlet engine ? Where did you put the .war, or where did you uncompress the zip ?

Hey guys,

I'm trying to install JForum for the first time, but whenever I load the install page I get this error:

The requested resource (/forum/install/install.page) is not available.

From looking at the contents of install.jsp:

<jsp:forward page="install/install.page?module=install&action=welcome"/>

It does seem to simply forward to a page in the install directory, but here's the thing - I don't seem to have an install directory. The file I downloaded doesn't have an install directory for this to be forwarded to.

Am I doing something stupid? I'm a pretty experienced Java developer, but I've only lightly touched on jsp/servlets before, so this is all a wee bit new to me.

Thanks
I

Sigh... Me and my stupid inferior brain!

Well pointed out.

Happy to say that I was doing something else stupid as well which I have now sorted, and all is well with the world. Very easy installation in the end.

Looks like a great piece of software!

Thanks for the help.

I
