I have just checked in a fix for this, so it's available to anyone building JForum from source, and it will be part of the next regular release.

I think this topic can remain, if for no other reason than to remind people that the 2.1.9 version is not safe, and that they should switch to 2.4.1 at the least.

Please send me a "Purple Mooseage" (a.k.a. a private message) with the details and preferably your email - I'm one of the committers of JForum2.

Thanks for trying to debug the registration process, Tim. I'm not sure what's going on, maybe the captcha was acting up - did that get displayed for you, Mike?

Mike, I've sent you a message with contact information for the two principal developers (one of which would be me).

This looks similar to the already lengthy discussion at http://jforum.andowson.com/posts/list/141.page; maybe you can join in there?

JForum currently has no mobile (or responsive) version, and nothing to that effect is in the works (I'm a committer to the project, so I should know :-). If you want to start a discussion about this, head over to http://jforum.andowson.com/ where JForum2 is discussed and supported.

That should be sufficient. While you're at it, you should also expand the jforum_privmsgs.privmsgs_ip field (which stores the IP address for private messages). While that is not currently being filled in, it will be soon.

You can check out JForum2, one of the more popular open source Java-based forum web apps (disclaimer: I'm a committer, so obviously biased). You can see it in action at http://jforum.andowson.com/forums/list.page; that should give you some ideas what you might want or need.

The first thing to do is to switch to the latest JForum2 version, which you can find at https://sourceforge.net/projects/jforum2. Drop the war file into your servlet container, and proceed from there.

Hard to say, you may want to ask the question over at http://jforum.andowson.com/forums/list.page where JForum 2.x is supported.

Yes, after the initial run that extracts the war file. Or does your servlet container a) not unpack the war file, or b) does it do so every time the server is started?

Every time i restart my WildFly service and run my JForum, installation form is displayed and every time forum is created from scratch.



Only just saw this. The installation form is displayed even if you access an URL like http://localhost:8080/jforum2/? That sounds odd. You should actually remove the mapping of the InstallServlet after the initial install, so that nobody accidentally accesses it.

because i'll have to delploy JForum again


That's what I'm asking - why do you think you need to do that? You don't need to, and should not.

When new version of JForum will be avalible i'll download it, and i'll deploy it on my server. And i'll want to use my old DB, how Will I import it?


In that case you would run the upgrade procedure, not the installation procedure, so there's no need to export or import the DB. If a DB migration is necessary, then that version's wiki page (e.g. https://sourceforge.net/p/jforum2/wiki2/NewFeatures241/) would mention it, and there would be a DB script in the "upgrade" directory (see the source at https://sourceforge.net/p/jforum2/code/HEAD/tree/trunk/).

when i want to restart my server I have to walk through installation process again.


Why do you think you have to to do that? Installation is a one-time thing that you never need to do again (and should not do again, precisely for the reason that you lose your data).

By the way, you are using JForum 2.4.1, yes? All earlier versions have serious security issues and should be avoided. That version is supported in the forums at http://jforum.andowson.com/forums/list.page

Not sure what's happening, but note that JForum 2.1.8 is obsolete - it has various problems, including exploitable security holes. You should use the latest version from https://sourceforge.net/projects/jforum2/ instead. Support forums for that version can be found at http://jforum.andowson.com/forums/

The only actively developed version of JForum -JForum2 2.4.1- is fully Maven-ized.
