XF 1.4 404 Not Found

    I've recently been trying to install Xenforo on my website mcwarcraft.com

    I use a dedicated ubuntu server and I've uploaded all the necessary files in my var/www/forums directory and also set the permissions correctly.

    When I navigate to the url www.mcwarcraft.com/forums/install I get a 404 Not Found error.

    I was wondering if anyone could help me fix this so I can continue with the installation?

    As far as I can tell, there are no files in the /forums directory.

    Are you sure you have the hosting configured correctly and uploaded the files to the correct location?

    Yeah could it possibly have to do with the DNS?

    If the DNS is still propagating then that could be a factor.

    You can force the IP address in your Windows hosts file which will allow you to access the site.

    I used to have the site up and running a couple of months ago but I deleted all the files.

    That is a picture of my DNS. I'm not sure what is needed in the DNS for this to work, hopefully this looks ok?
