Can anybody provide step by step instructions on how to install jForum on a Windows 2003/IIS 6.0 server with MSSQL 2005? This is proving to be far more difficult than I anticipated. I went down the path of installing XAMPP and Tomcat, but that started to break down as soon as I realized I couldn't run both Apache and IIS, regardless of different listening ports. I set Apache at 8080 and had IIS listen on 80 and the service just wouldn't start.

I want to do this with IIS and Tomcat (I think).

Well, not totally step by step, but some starting points:

1) Install Tomcat and make sure it response to port 8080.

2) Install jForum on Tomcat (either copy the war to the webapps directory or expand it manually in the webapps directory.

3) Run install program via the 8080 port and verify that jforum works.

4) Go to the tomcat connector's page and use this to get the IIS to TC JK 1.2 connector working.

FWIW, we use this as our production setup... it can be picky to get to work (mosting IIS's settings to get a the filter to work).

For extra credit, you might look at the IISConfig Listener class in the API.. this can be added to your server.xml file to automatically create the file for ALL tomcat webapps (when server is started).
