I've tried to install the forum on another server that have:
- Apache Tomcat/5.0.18
- JDK 1.4.2-b28
- mysql Ver 12.17 Distrib 4.0.10-gamma, for pc-linux (i686)
- O.S. Linux (kernel 2.4.18-14)

instead of:
- Apache Tomcat/5.5.4
- JDK 1.5.0_01-b08
- mysql Ver 14.7 Distrib 5.0.2-alpha, for pc-linux (i686)
- O.S. Linux (kernel 2.4.18-14)

Using your experience, what could be the problem?
I hope to solve 'cose I need to run the JForum on the second machine I have listed here up...

�?f you are not able to install using the wizard, please configure it manually. Please see http://www.jforum.net/install_no_wizard.htm

I'll download JDK 5.0 and Tomcat 5.5.x and try it.

I try to use the mysql version 4.1, but JForum still does not work.
I also tried to setup the JForum with manual install, but it still doesn't work

What does not work with 4.1? I tested it and works almost 100%.. Just some minor parts fail.

I'm just trying this brand new configuration:
- Apache Tomcat/5.0.30
- JDK 1.4.2-b28 Sun Microsystems Inc.
- Linux 2.4.18-14 i386
- mysql Ver 12.22 Distrib 4.0.23, for pc-linux (i686)

and I'm just performing the manual installation.
What I have back when I request the JForum is a blank page and an url line like this one: http://localhost:8080/JForum-2.0.2/install/install.page?module=install&action=welcome. The tomcat log doesn't show any error.

I already have seen the two post:
1) http://www.coderanch.com/t/574921
2) http://www.coderanch.com/t/574920
so, please, don't remind me there

edit:
With the configuration just sayied I've tryied the wizard.
So I've got back this error:

how I can fix it?

I've found the mistake, maybe mine but I'm not so sure.
I found that the mysql user haven't got the right rigths to manage the database. So, fixed the roghts of the that user I can install and run JForum.

Now I'll test the Jforum with a few of differen configuration and I'll put here the results. Hope this shuld help your work.
