After the download, unpack the .ZIP file into your webapp's directory (or anyplace you want to put it). A directory named JForum- will be created, where is the version, which may be "2.0", "2.1.7" etc... this it just for easy version identification.
You can rename the directory if you want. 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.
And i cant understand what you mean by that. How can I register the jForum application in Apache? and i am using eclipse, how can i use JForum in eclipse?
and also in here:
JForum expects that some directories are writable by the webserver. Before you start installing, please check if the following directories, and their sub-directories, exist and have full write permissions:
i dont have the : WEB-INF/jforumLuceneIndex , will that be ok? i downloaded the 1.9 version (the latest)

There are a couple of different JForum versions, but none with version 1.9; where did you download that?
hi, im sorry it was JForum v 2.1.9 . Yes I now have Apache Tomcat 7 installed in my pc. Then, what i did was, I pasted the whole folder of JForum inside the webapps of my apache, was that right? then I tried to run it, but it gives me an error.
HTTP Status 404 - /jforum2/
type Status report
description The requested resource is not available.
hope you can help me.

Do you think that im starting in the wrong way? Can you tell me why can't i run it? Thank you.
