Okay I got the board upgraded, updated, and it's working. I found the Database updater in the ACP, worked perfectly. I then moved the Install directory to test the forum and it worked! All the posts are there! Thank you for your help!
Okay, I edited the config.php file. The forum still runs. I have done the manual upgrade to 3.2.1 but I have some confusion. I went to the "install" folder to do the conversion but I am at a loss as how to start it. There is now instruction read.me file.
