Not Solved
Thanks!

Note for self: no, the best way is to unzip locally, then copy Upload directory to remote server in desired place for the browser to find it and rename as desired.

One problem with unzipping remotely is that the Owner field won't be set to the owner of the website, so the files will not be accessible! I found I had to do it all over again the right way.

Note to self: to remove DIR including contents, regardless of owner, use "rm -r -f DIR" in root remote SSH from local.

In case the above isn't clear, the proper way to set the permissions and owner of each directory and file is to expand the zip file locally, then use an FTP program to upload all the directories and files to the desired destination directory where browsers will find the new forum. (Stuff like this belongs in the installation guide, if you want to save people like me a lot of work.)
