Hi I'm trying to install jforum on a Tomcat server and the install page comes up blank. What am I missing?

One thing would be checking the log files of your application server. Sometimes you find valuable hints in there. Second is that you have to type in the correct path to the install file. Possibly you could try to do the manual installation so you dont have to cope with the missing __install_redirect file (which you probably still miss out in your deployment)

My guess for the blank page would be some "failed to find the application name" - maybe your address pointed to some application folder on the server that does not exist?

Thanks for the reply. My server administrator made a few tweaks and got it to work.
