    no, you don't need a new directory.
    you have to move the content of the "xenforo 1.5.8 xxxx FULL" in the parent directory ( "/" )

    p.s. sei italiano?

    Okay, let's do it step by step.
    Check your folder structure via FTP. You have uploaded the files the following way:

    /xenforo_1.5.8_B81AA57A3E_full/upload/*Folders like "install" or "library" in here*

    You need to upload only the contents of the upload folder to your FTP, neither "xenforo_1.5.8_B81AA57A3E_full" nor "upload"

    At the end, your folder structure in FileZilla should look like this:


    and so on...

    If you need any further assistance, just send a PM.
