I have tried every combination and cannot locate your phpBB3 files.
I suggest...

*NOTE: Before proceeding backup all files and the database.*
  • Upload all new files from a download of the full version overwriting your previous phpBB3 files, except for config.php, the /images and /files folders.
  • Go to yoursite.com/forumfolder/install/database_update.php
  • Let that run and then delete the install folder.
  • You now have a new up to date board containing all your users and posts but without any MODs that you might have had installed.
