    Hi there people!

    Well, I just bought XenForo and installed it in my server. Can I delete the install folder?

    Thanks a lot,
    Daniel Bittar.

    You don't need to delete that folder. You should leave it.

    XF writes an internal_data/install-lock.php file to lock out the install script without having to delete it.

    However it would be safer to delete, wouldn't? Does it break the application if I do so?

    No.
    I rename the install to a cryptic-nonsense name. :D

    Nope. It's already safe.

    I don't think it will break anything. But it will cause you extra work if you ever need to rebuild the master data (you will need to upload that directory again).
