When I installed jforum 2.1.7, got the belowed error message:

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".


I copied file __index.redirect.htm to jforum folder but still got above error message. Anyone knows about it?

Thanks a lot.

My problem has been fixed. I just modified the name of file from __index.redirect.htm to __index.redirect. Then worked.
