Best Installation And Setup Experience


Well-known member
I was looking at this comparison. I was little shocked to see just two stars to the Installation experience of XenForo. In my opinion, it is one of the best experiences I ever had (except Wordpress - which is not a forum software indeed). But, who cares my opinion. :)


Get latest xenforo.zip
Upload .zip to server
Unpack on the server
Load /install/ in the browser
Follow the 5 instructions.
And start posting!

5 stars.

That site comes across to me as a little amateur, how can they rate VB4 as 10 out of 10? When the average rating is 3.5 out of 10 from 328 votes? heh

It's as if they install it, it works, so give it 10/10, without proper testing or investigation from people's experiences

If anything, a final/editor rating should be based on the total user feedback and votes.

To be honest though, I installed Xenforo for a friend and found it to be, well, a very good experience, it's a very smooth software to work with from the get go.
