    From the manual here: http://xenforo.com/help/add-ons/

    BTW, going by your profile you're probably the oldest member of this community at 113! :)

    Upload the contents of the /upload folder usually.

    However, every add-on is different so follow the instructions provided.

    So connect, and drag and drop the upload folder and the .DS_STORE? Or the xml file as well?

    Just the contents of the /upload folder.

    The XML file is what you'll need when you install the add-on after uploading the files. See point 3. in the Installing a New Add-on guide above.

    Hehe.

    So here we go, firstly, Extract your Zip file if you haven't done that already. Then connect to your site via FTP. In the Add-on files that you just extracted, open the "upload" folder to reveal the folders inside of it (usually something like Library and JS or whatever. Simply upload these folders into your forum directory... ie... if your forum is located at www.yoursite.com/forum then upload them into the /forum directory. If it's www.yoursite.com/community then upload them to the /community directory.

    Once you uploaded them, open up your forum and go to your ACP (Admin Control Panel) and go to "List Add-ons". At the top right click "Install Add-on" and choose the XML file that your Add-on came with.

    If you need further help, I can literally show you how to do it.

    Yes and you asked what you needed to upload. Brogan answered saying to upload the contents of the upload folder. You said you didn't have an upload folder when you previously stated that you had one.

    Anyway, @xIsabel38 has given you some pretty clear instructions on what to do.

    Hopefully you'll grasp it, it's not too difficult really.

    If on the other hand you find it a bit much, there's Chris Deeming's Add-on Install & Upgrade which you may want to consider.

    How did you manage to install XenForo?

    The process is very similar.
