Hmm, that error's new to me. Please describe the environment, versions, and the like of where you are trying to install jForum and more specifics on when this error occurs. [originally posted on jforum.net by monroe]
jforum - jforum-2.1.8
mysql - 4.1
i'm hosting from godaddy
Your URL above indicates you are trying to run the installer locally (the "localhost" part). Did you install JForum on your local computer or are you trying to get it to run at GoDaddy?
I tried (unsuccessfully!) to get JForum to run under a GoDaddy Linux hosting account ... they don't offer a "true" java hosting environment ... but just one that will let java applets work. [originally posted on jforum.net by GatorBait3]

I would bet that trying to use GoDaddy hosting is your problem. They have a lot of restrictions, and some whacky paths to the webapps. Even to deploy an application requires that you have to wait overnight .. the deploys happen between 11pm and 1am CST (if my memory serves me correctly). And you cannot request a restart of Tomcat ... ever. You have to wait for the nightly deploys to run. [originally posted on jforum.net by GatorBait3]
