Hi Gurus,

After I followed the manual configuration steps. when I type http://localhost:8080/JForum-2.1.6/ the page gets redirected to the http://localhost:8080/JForum-2.1.6/install/install.page?module=install&action=welcome and browser shows up a blank page.

Here I am attaching the boot log file

What do I do ?

Thanks

There is only this log file? inside there is nothing related to JForum.

Did you fail in the middle of the installation process? What database did you specify? You need to create the database unless you choose to use hsqldb database.

I just run into the same problem when I copied the war file to another machine but did not create the database (MySQL) and I forgot that I once disabled the "Install=..." control file in moduleMapping.properties when I successfully installed JForum in my development machine.

Just to share my experience. Hope it help somewhat!

What happens when you go to:

http://localhost:8080/JForum-2.1.6/forums/list.page ?

If you get the forum index you expected, I had exactly the same problem, and I believe it is something to do with how you redirect *.page

I was having the same problem. If you're installing by hand then you have to rename __index.redirect after all the other steps (removing index.htm first)
This file has a different name in the help page, so it might vary with version.
Hope this helps
