    I'm clueless about what I should set everything at/what needs to be set at what. Could anyone clue me in :confused:

    You only need to chmod these two folders:


    They need to be writable, or chmod 777.

    What server are you running?
    Essentially all you need to do is what is listed in the INSTALL.txt document.

    To install XenForo, you will need to extract the zip and upload all the files
    from the contained upload directory onto your web server. You may upload into
    your web root, or any folder within the web root. This shall be referred to
    as your XenForo Directory.

    Having uploaded the necessary files, you should direct your web browser to the
    URL that corresponds to your XenForo Directory and add '/install' to the address
    (eg: http://www.example.com/xenforo/install). This will trigger the installation
    process, which will guide you through the necessary steps to get a working XenForo
    installation running on your server.

    Have you tried installing it?
    Did you encounter any errors?

    Personally I didn't have to chmod anything.

    I installed it without an issue, I just wanted to make sure if there were any permissions that needed to be set. Thanks for clearing that up.

    OK, just found out (from the man himself) that as my server runs suexec then that's why I didn't have to chmod anything.

    For people who don't know what that means.
