Hi ,
i've been working as a j2ee coder for some time now , never touched php .
i've opened a site some days ago and after looking around decided to go with phorum , setting up utf8 and language files was simple but i would appericate some help with understanding how apache and php work toghter .
how can i "insert" the phorum inside an html file so i can use dir="rtl" and other changes that i want ?
and do u guys know if there's a way to "encapsulate" that html then inside a jsp and somehow block access to it trough tomcat ?
is there a simpler way to run php on a local computer other then the eclipse plugin and installing apache on my computer ?
thanks in advance .

These are all questions that are very much outside the scope of Phorum. I suggest you start reading about Apache and PHP. Inserting Phorum inside a HTML file is not possible. But Phorum has templates that you can edit. Read docs/creating_templates.txt. Encapsulating that in a jsp and using tomcat? My god, that is way, way, way over the top and flaky and probably not even possible. You could write a HTTP proxy in jsp code, but I guess that is not what you are planning to do here.

Overall, you need first to get a grasp of what Phorum is and does and what PHP can do for you. Installing apache+php+mysql is easy enough with the XAMPP package, so I suggest you start with that. No eclipse needed for that. Editing PHP files can be done with Eclipse but you don't need it for running PHP.
