    I need files in the xenforo root.
    I don't know which one that is.

    Is that inside of /public_html
    Or maybe /public_html/Libraries ?

    If your domain is mrchasez.com
    And you can access XenForo at http://mrchasez.com, it's very likely that xenforo root is /public_html. No guarantee though.

    In your case the forum root is the same as the web root. public_html/ is a typical name for the web root so that's probably it. I can't know for sure without admin access to your forum.

    Hi - I apologize for my stupidity - I just purchased Xenforo yesterday. I'm having a really difficult time installing a Style I purchased, as well as Post Ratings add-on. I've been trying for hours. Can someone help me figure out where exactly the files are supposed to be placed in the root directory? I am so lost & frustrated. Thank you.

    I posted this in another topic as well. Just trying to get as much help as I can. I really like the Xenforo platform, I just can't upload anything! Thank you.

    public_html/ is your root.

    Did you upload the contents of the xenforo folder there or did you upload the folder itself?

    Maybe post a screenshot of your directory contents?

    Thanks, Rob. Here are the screenshots. I've been following directions to the T - "upload the contents of the Upload folder, etc."

    Is that last screenshot the full contents (data, images, includes, etc)? What directory is that the contents of? There should be some other files, index.php, admin.php, etc in there.
