Not Found

The requested URL /forums/list.page was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
Apache/2.0.61 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.0.61 OpenSSL/0.9.8b mod_auth_passthrough/2.1 FrontPage/5.0.2.2635 mod_jk/1.2.25 mod_bwlimited/1.4 PHP/5.2.4 Server at tchatng.com Port 80

I get the above arrow when i try to run jforum, i have uploaded all the files and configured the database. how do i fix this error.

JForum is too hard to install, compared to other easier forums like simple machines

Do you have an app server running (i.e. Tomcat, JBoss, etc.)? Very few ISPs offer Java hosting, so you will need to check with your ISP to see if they support hosting full Java apps (not just applets).

If your ISP does support Java or you have your own server running a Java app server, the URL to the install page will be: http://YOUR_SERVER_OR_DOMAIN_NAME:8080/jforum_VERSION/install.jsp (assuming your app server is running on port 8080). Substitute what you used for the jforum directory name for the "jforum_VERSION" part of the URL.

Try hitting: http://tchatng.com:8080/forums/list.page .... you'll see your forum page there. Is there a jkworkers set up to redirect Apache to port 8080?

Men you guys are pros, I never thought of accessing it that way.

My account uses apache as the webserver while apache tomcat is the handler for jsp and servlets

how do i fix this so that i can access it via tchatng.com and how does one place a link to google adsense in the middle of the page.

You have to define this in the worker files, so that the apache worker knows for which URL to pass the information forward to the tomcat.

You might look for some worker.properties or similar

What Sid is referring to is an Apache config setup, not a JForum dependency (but JForum will use it). I'd check on the Apache web site for further documentation.

There are several things that need to be updated to implement this functionality (ALL of which are NOT part of the JForum install or JForum requirements ... it's an Apache thing!). But a high level of what needs to be done ... a mod_jk.so module file needs to be installed for Apache2, the httpd.conf file needs to be modified to use the jk module (ie. add "-D JK" to OPTS line), the vhosts.conf file needs to be updated for the site URL to associate with the jk redirect, and a workers.properties file needs to be setup.

Also, if you just want http://tchatng.com to automatically load the JForum page when someone hits that URL, you could also make a index.html file that does a redirect to the Jforum port/page. That would look like this:

***index.html***
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<html>
<head>
<title>Redirecting</title>
<meta http-equiv="REFRESH" content="0;url=http://tchatng.com:8080/forums"></HEAD>
<BODY>
</BODY>
</HTML>

Men u guys want to scatter my brain, GatorBait3 could you send me your email address so I could talk 2 u one on one. mine is t_edoja@yahoo.com

how long do threads stay alive in jforum, imagine a case where my diskspace is used up.

future versions of jforum should have an easy installation procedure like simple machines forum

feature implementaions of jforum should have a feature where by when you click a category or go to the forum listing, it should automatically show lists of recent threads more like the way answers.yahoo.com works

i might have to switch to simple machines forum, jforum is to hard to configure even on my local system

Please don't confuse the Apache configuration for redirecting port 8080 traffic with JForum's installation ... any Java application running under an app server using port 8080 would have the same requirements ... either use the ":8080" in the URL or set up an Apache JK redirect.

Simple Machines Forum uses PHP, which runs on port 80 like most web sites, so no port redirection enters the picture.

As far as I know, the threads "live" until they are manually purged or deleted (meaning there isn't an "auto-purge" for threads over a certain age).

Here is the link to the Apache Tomcat Connectors page: http://tomcat.apache.org/connectors-doc/

I also sent you an email.

Try looking at the forum_list.htm or forum_show.htm pages in the templates/default directory.

How can I make Jforum search able from search engines such that when someone searches for cars in google.com the forum will have its thread containing cars listed in the google search result.
