Thanks for help! Host made the folder permissions and my forum is back, although when I tried /forum/install I get "Information
No route found for "GET /install/"
It appears to be 3.1.9 and missing some icons and who knows what else. But I can login to the admin panel
to be safe I'll download the full package again, and start over with the instructions

Before I move forward anyone have time to advise or give me a "yes do that"?
