Hi

I have 2 clients for which I want to Install Jforum on a single server.

The simplest thing that I could have done is:
Create 2 directories forum1 and forum2 under webapps and put the jforum.war file into both.

Now configure the virtual hosts such that
http://forum.firstClient.com -> points to webapps/forum1
http://forum.secondClient.com -> points to webapps/forum2

Is there an way that I can achieve this from the single War file? Does JForum supports this???

Thanks in Advance

No, JForum can't do that out of the box. And while it would be easy to configure all servlets and filters in web.xml twice for different URLs, it looks as if the path to the config directory is not configurable - so both servlets would use the same settings (and the same css, images and templates directories).

Maybe one of these forum softwares does it: http://java-source.net/open-source/forum-software
