    I go to install xenforo but when i try it i get this error

    You don't have permission to access /install/ on this server.

    What can i do?

    You may need to contact your host to see if they have a more specific error. At a guess though, you may have chmodded the install directory (or a parent directory) in a way your host doesn't like. What you upload is normally sufficient.

    @Mike I just got this error for the first time even though nothing has changed... what should the permissions be set to for the install directory and files etc.?

    the .htaccess file in the install folder was causing it, i disabled it, it was configured to not allow access to that file

    As a heads up, the core package does not have a .htaccess file in the install directory.
