I'm an experienced Java developer, and I bet there is something stupid happens .. I Tried to search this forum and found many guys faced the same problem but couldn't find any solution.

I downloaded Jforum ZIP package version 2.1.9 (which is the only version I found!), unpacked it, registered it to Tomcat, and followed installation instruction as explained. These instructions say to go to "http://localhost:8080/jforum/install.jsp" to start installation >> When I do I get this error message: "The requested resource (/jforum/install/install.page) is not available."

This JSP has the line <jsp:forward page="install/install.page?module=install&action=welcome"/> but "install" directory doesn't exist in ZIP package which I downloaded. Whats wrong!

Thanks in advance,
Bola

Bola,
Welcome to CodeRanch!

"install" isn't a directory. It's a module name. JForum uses modules to direct to the proper action in the code. So "install" really means run the install action class.

My guess is that you didn't unzip into the right directory for Tomcat. Check your start up logs to see if they say anything about recognizing JForum.
