Does anyone have step by step insructions or more detailed instructions than just whats on the installation page?

I downloaded the software, unzipped it and then uploaded it to my hosting company http://www.ixwebhosting.com/index.php/v2/pages.dspmain

Now I'm lost....

I go to http://localhost:8080/jforum/install.jsp as the instructions say but it doesn't work. I didn't change the name or anything when I downloaded it.

And I'm confused as to the below statement
The next step you should do is register the JForum application within your Servlet Container, like Tomcat. This document will use the context name "jforum", but of course you can use any name you want.

What does this mean?

Thanks for any and all help!!!

If you have one of the "standard" hosting plans, you don't have a Java app server available to you to run any Java based applications.

You probably want to look for a php based forum system if you don't want to find a Java hosting ISP.

I have the Unlimited plan and it says Java is part of that...I might have to call them but do I need to turn it on or something?

It's been my experience that "Java support" typically means for the ability to run Java applets in web pages, not Java applications. But you will need to check with your ISP to confirm.
