This seems to be a question asked often around here.

I have just setup my Apache2/Tomcat6 server following the directions outlined on howtoforge here.
http://www.howtoforge.com/how-to-install-tomcat6-with-sun-java-and-apache2-integration-on-ubuntu-10.04-lucid-lynx-with-virtual-hosts

I then followed the directions outlined here
http://code.google.com/p/jforum2/wiki/ManualInstallation

Last, I visited localhost/forum/install.jsp and to my grief find
install.page is not available.

I come from the PHP / C/C++ worlds, which is what got me to use jforum, I had a Java class at the Uni and remembered how nice the language was, with it's type checking and advanced IDE and debuggers.

I'm not as familiar with tomcat/apache/jsp however and do need some help.

I'm getting the feeling that I need to define a JSP directory in services.xml?

Again, I'm not sure and unfortunatly I don't have time to read through the hundreds of white Apache whitepages.

I suppose I should gtfo if i can't rtfm thus go back to the world of PHP. =(

I have much to learn before I should even be asking for help.

It's a whole different world from PHP here.

Thanks for providing a place to tap out my thoughts.

Welcome to CodeRanch!

It's nice to see your thought process and that you got it worked out so quickly.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
