Hi Forum,

I want to install jforum on an own server. But I can't find any documentation regarding the hardware and software requirements.

Can someone tell me about the software part here?
Can I install jforum 2.1.9 with Java8, Apache Tomact 8.5.14 and Oracle 11g?

Thanks in advance.

The page you're looking for is at https://sourceforge.net/p/jforum2/wiki2/SystemRequirements/. This is where you should get the latest released version (2.4.1), or even better, build it from the source code which has multiple fixes and improvements over 2.4.1, and is just as solid.

2.1.9 is an obsolete version which has multiple unpatched security holes.

As I do not install the database on my own, I need to know what rights the DB user, which will be used to connect jForum to the DB, has to have.

In my case I will get access to a schema in an Oracle database. So i need the information which user rights my Oracle user needs.
The only info I get from the installation guide is 'you must have [...] Oracle [...] installed and properly configured' which does not help me much.

I don't use Oracle, so I can't be specific about it, but the user needs to be able to create and drop sequences, indices and tables, and be able to perform insert, delete, update and select statements.
