PDF files are in the "documents" group.
If you go to "Manage extension groups", and click on the green cog alongside the "documents" group, you can tick the "Allowed" field.

U mean th green cog is an EDIT button?
But there is nothing to do.. all is enabled. But I still can not upload PDF files. It says an error: The extension pdf is not allowed.
I think that there is need to define, that pdf is allowed to upload! But how?

Do your settings look like this? Have you allowed it in All forums or at least the specific forums you want it enabled in? The "Allowed" box is checked?

ACP -> Posting -> Manage Extension Groups -> Next to Extension group "Documents" and click on the green icon in the "Options" column.
**edit** obviously you figured it out based on your edited post above. :|
