So I fixed the previous issue, now I am on the final step... I went to my mac instead of my laptop to test my forum out and it said that my website url couldn't be found or whatever. Basically I can only access my website through localhost, Someone please help with this issue.

Do you have a domain and hosting?
If not, you will need to purchase those and install it there.

Buy a domain (URL).

Purchase hosting.

Install XenForo on your hosts server.

That will then make the site available on the internet.

You would need to import your database. Whatever host you choose should be able to help you with that.
Thanks
