Uploading Xenforo onto Server

    I'm one of those try-it-yourself types, and I was thinking that I would try uploading/installing Xenforo onto the server I go for to be able to tick off another thing I can do for myself :D

    But, if I mess it up (I'm not sure how you can but you never know), will that mean I need to rebuy Xenforo? And if I really mess it up, can I still buy the Installation Service?

    Never mind, just saw it answered in another thread XD

    Just so you know:
    • If you mess up, no need to rebuy
    • If you really mess up, you can indeed still buy the Installation Service.

    Hi Drae! You're a member of our site that just went XenForo. It's pretty much like any other software.

    I did find Ghan here on these forums very helpful in setting it up.

    Use Linux. Windows is rarely used.

    I've personally never used GoDaddy for hosting but I'd look into alternatives.

    Back away slowly and find another alternative.

    Godaddy is the subject of a lot of attacks (more than average and beyond normal).

    Forgetting that... You need only Google the words "Godaddy" and "Forum Hosting" to find the truth or search here or checkout webhostingtalk.com ..... All the above will tell you how poor Godaddy is for php and mysql.

    This is true no matter what forum software you decide.
