Are you going to the install page or is it redirecting you there?

One thing we did here was to take the precaution here of deleting the jsp so it's not in the war to be run.

There's a property file that stores settings once you've installed. (jforum-custom.conf). Is it possible this file is getting overridden when you deploy?

Hi Jeanne,
Actually thats not created in my project ,because i tried to get forums/list.page instead of installl.jsp ,some modification i have done in source code,because of not having install action that (jform-custom.conf) is not created.
I manually copied that file from another jforum project and...thats worked ,but the problem is if i copied that file into project(that is in eclipse) and build war file of my project,thats not working,when i manually copied only its working..

thanks Jeanne
