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.

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