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: 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.
