I am running redhat linux, Apache Tomcat 5, mysql. I following the instructions for installing JForum according to the the configuration forum. However, I get "the page cannot be found" error when I tried to test it. I am running mysql in localhost and I have a website. I want to be able to implement JForum on my website. Can anyone please point me to the right directions. Thank You!

Are you using tomcat together with apache, using mod_jk? How have you configured the Tomcat context to jforum?

I am unclear about your question. I don't have mod_jk module. I have Tomcat running on port 80. What do you think the problem might me. I have JDBC dirvier in Tomcat, common->lib file. Is this might be the problem.

Do you think the problem might be because I am running mysql in localhost. I have a domain name, therefore, instead of jdbc:mysql://localhost/mysql?user=XXXX&password=XXXX , I should change it to jdbc:mysql://mydomain/mysql?user=xxxx$password=xxxx. If so, where how do I configure mysql to point to my domain instead of localhost.

mysql should works fine on localhost.
To connecto to a remote mysql instance, that mysql server should allow connections from your host. See the mysql manual about configuring the server.

Moreover, the error "the page cannot be found" is not related to mysql problems. Are you running tomcat AND apache at the same time? don't forget that tomcat, by default, runs on port 8080.

If you already solved the page not found error and now are getting database erros, what error message ( there is an exception showed? ) appears?

I change the tomcat default port 8080 to port 80 on server.xml. I have Apache on my machine, but I have the services turn off. I am not getting any mysql error. The only error I got was "page cannot be found". Thank You!

Have you configured a <Context> to JForum in servet.xml ?

Do you mean server.xml in tomcat. I did not find any <Context>.

I have set the context in Tomcat. I did not get any error. In fact, I get a blank page. Can you tell me what is the problem. Thank You!

This is how I set the context.
<context path="/jforum" docBase="/usr/local/jakarta- tomcat/webapps/ROOT/JForum-RC2" debug="0" >
</context>

Ok, then you've got an exception, for some reason. Try looking in tomcat's log files ( localhost_lost, catalina.out etc ).. if there is an error, then if must be there.
