I work for an LMS company. We have just started using JForum. We have multiple clients that want to use JForum. Our clients need to have the ability to manage their own forums. What is the best way to accomplish this? Should I create another Jforum instance in my Apache Tomact webapp folder with a different DNS and database connection or can I use the same JForum instance and configured another instance with a different DNS and database connection. I hope this make sense.

Thanks.

JForum has no provisions for multi-tenancy, so this will have to be done on the web app level. That means multiple instances of JForum. How exactly depends on whether you want URLs such as www.server.com/forum1 and www.server.com/forum2 etc. or forum1.server.com and forum2.server.com etc. But that's a Tomcat config issue, not a JForum config issue.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
