    Use the file manager app in cPanel and create a new directory called 'forum'.

    Then install XF there by uploading the zip archive and extracting on the server.

    A lot of people regret putting their forum in /forum/ folder, because with xenforo you end up with the weird /forum/forums in the URL when you are looking at a forum. Something like /community/ works better which is what they do here.

    It's really simple. Whatever the root of the domain you are wanting it in, THAT is where you create the directory. Nobody can tell you for sure where to create it as you have several domains apparently under your public_html directory and you haven't specified what domain you want them under.
    If it's the Healthwhoop.com one, then THAT is the directory you create the /community under.

    Which I clearly answered.
    If you are having a hard time understanding to create the folder for your XenForo install (name it whatever you want, but community is probably best) under the root of the domain you want to use, then I strongly suggest you engage the services of someone familiar with using cPanel and setting up multiple domains and installing scripts in a folder off of a domain root.

    Suggestion.. see if they will a screen sharing utility (like TeamViewer) and then log remotely into your desktop to do the work. Then you can watch as they do it. Some people charge more if they have to do it that way as it's much slower (there's always questions that get asked that result in the process taking longer).

    https://xenforo.com/help/installation/ there is your answer

    Code:
    Once the files are finished uploading, you must set permissions (or CHMOD) several places. This is necessary to ensure that XenForo can write to those parts of your server. You can usually do this with your FTP client.
    
        In the set of files and directories you just uploaded, you will see 2 folders: data and internal_data.
        These two directories must be set to world writeable (CHMOD 0777) or give the IUSR_ Full Control in Windows.

    I have changed folder permission to 777 by right clicking on folder.
