I'd like to run a vB forum on my website but I don't think PHP will run on Tomcat by default. Does anyone know if their is a module or something to install?

you should get Apache web server and run both Tomcat and PHP through it.

James, why do you want to use Tomcat for a VB forum? I believe for that the Apache webserver itself should be enough, it comes with PHP functionality. If you want to use Servlets and JSPs then you can use Tomcat as well, but PHP support will still be implemented on Apache.

Because my website runs JSP/Servlets and I'd rather not run two web servers.
