I'm not finding this. I need help.

When I type http://localhost:8080/jforum/install.jsp

Then I get:

HTTP Status 404 - /jforum/install.jsp
type Status report
message /jforum/install.jsp
description The requested resource is not available.
Apache Tomcat/8.0.0-RC1

The directory for tomcat is: C:\Program Files (x86)\apache-tomcat-8.0.0-RC1
The directory for jForum is: C:\Program Files (x86)\jforum

I started tomcat with the supplied startup.bat.

Where should I place JForum, of what should I change so tomcat finds it?

Thanks!

I'm pretty sure my JForum is simply not installed.

How do I install JForum knowing http://localhost:8080/jforum/install.jsp gives me a 404?

It's better but I still need help.

Now I moved JForum in the tomcat webapps directory and I get this error:

HTTP Status 500 - An exception occurred processing JSP page /install.jsp at line 1

type Exception report

message An exception occurred processing JSP page /install.jsp at line 1

description The server encountered an internal error that prevented it from fulfilling this request.

exception

org.apache.jasper.JasperException: An exception occurred processing JSP page /install.jsp at line 1

1: <jsp:forward page="install/install.page?module=install&action=welcome"/>

http://localhost:8080/jforum/ping_session.jsp

The ping session works:

Done. This is used by JForum to ensure the session does not expire.

It's nice to see the progress you made by yourself!

Now Tomcat knows about the JForum war, but is getting some error. Can you look in the tomcat logs fro the actual error?

Also, note that "install.jsp" is what sets up your database. You have to make Tomcat happy first.
