i have NO IDEA what this error is trying to tell me...can anyone help?

Thanks in advance,

variable dbinstance might not have been initialized


Says it all. You are declaring a variable without initializing it prior to its first reference.

Typing in all capital letters is equal to screaming at people in the forum and is considered rude.
This usually has the opposite effect from what you wanted as some people will refuse to help someone who screams at them.

sorry, it's just a little upsetting when instead of helping people just tell me exactly what the compiler is telling me....

The compiler was giving you the answer.
Bear was just pointing that out to you.

I would start by using System.out.println("here") to locate where, exactly in the JSP it is blowing up.

You have used

PreparedStatement sql;

in your code but you are not using variable sql anywhere in your code.

Try removing that line.

You said that you did not understand what the error meant. I was pointing it out. You're welcome.

I said I didn't know what the second error meant (the one i got after i did initialize it). The first error, that you are referring to, i said i didn't know why i was getting it, not i didn't know what it meant. Thanks.

There isn't much info on that error to go by. The most useful piece of info is probably:

at org.apache.jsp.auth_jsp._jspService(auth_jsp.java:100)


The exception is being thrown from line 100 of the java servlet created on behalf of auth.jsp. Find that java file (Tomcat will have written it to the folder hierarchy under $CATALINA_HOME/work) and see what is going on at line 100.
