Hi

I am trying to install JForum using Tomcat/5.5.15 and get the error;

Please give write access for the user who is running the webserver to the file 'index.htm' and for the directory 'WEB-INF/config' and its subdirectories before continuing.

JForum needs to write its configurations there. When you're done, click at "Try Again".


Can someone tell me how to do the above?

TIA

Gary

Hi Monroe

I am now getting another error, after putting the __index.redirect file in place;

Error while trying to configure the database. Please check if parameters like username, password and host are correct and try again.

org.hsqldb.jdbcDriver

Can you tell me what is wrong?

TIA

Gary

you also need to copy over the jdbc driver.
for example working on tomcat, you may copy the hsqldb.jar to $CATALINA_HOME/webapps/jforum/WEB-INF/lib

it worked for me with hsqldb version 1.8 get it here http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=23316
