If you have an Apache server then an .htacess file will be there provided with the software.
All you need to do it check the box.

Ok I see. I don't see a .htaccess file on the server so I'll go ahead and upload a blank one.

There should be an .htaccess file in the directory where you installed the forum.
What server are you running?

I checked the xenforo upload folder and see that there is a .htaccess file. I uploaded that file to the server and it now works. When I'm viewing the xenforo upload folder regularly the .htaccess file does not show up, but when I view the folder through "FileZilla ftp" the file is being shown... maybe I have to change my viewing settings on my computer (Mac)

The .htaccess file is hidden so you will need to enable the setting to view hidden files.
