Yes, download 1.8.x and then upload all of the files from the upload folder into the root of your FTP server.

From there, go to your website (with /install at the end) and follow the instructions.

What I did is I downloaded threads, users, posts, usergroups and so on, which I imported back into the empty 1.8.X database.
Money is the motivation.

Just make sure you update your plugins.

No offense but if you do not know how that works, you shouldn't run a forum.  :yay:
