Visit admin.php?tools/phpinfo and search the page for "DOCUMENT_ROOT". That will reveal the full server path.
I do, and I'm about to try that- i uploaded an attachment and have been looking for it via filezilla. Thank you. :)

ok, I went in via ftp and the attachments directory is ftp://ftp.furryrphaven.com/furryrphaven.com/mybb/uploads/ which the Xenforo software apparently cannot find?

Is your FTP restricted to individual folders? If you submit a ticket with ftp, ssh, admin and control panel access I can look into this further for you tonight.
Alright, the import directory issue is fixed, it was a /home/userid issue that my host had to tweak perms on. I will probably not need to submit a ticket after all! Thank heavens!
