But before I announce its resurrection to the public, I'd like to have an upgrade specialist upgrade phpBB2 to the latest version that can be supported by PHP Version 5.3.29 and MySQL Version 5.5.58-cll.
The latest version which can run on your current system is phpBB3.0.14. I suggest you upgrade to 3.0.14 asap if only because phpBB2 is really outdated and not secure anymore.
Also It will give you a headstart with the new permission system (and it's at least one big part done in the upgrade procedure.)
Once your system (php, MySql) has been upgraded you can then upgrade phpBB and there are many users here who have experience with upgrading from 3.0 > 3.1 or even 3.2.
