Yes. If you have the files and the database, then it is exactly the same as being "installed".
So where's this information gone now?
Agreed, that is .. in a way. the confusion arises (or as of now: arose) from a natural association of "functional" and "installed" on the same server, which is impossible (simultaneously) with 2.0 and 3.2
Is there a phpBB backup of the 2.0 database, of do you have phpMyAdmin access to that database. If either answer is yes, then the necessary data can be found, or a new copy of the database could be installed.
We are currently running MySQL version 5.0.51 with InnoDB functionality. Our exclusive, customized version of phpMyAdmin includes the ability to instantly restore tables and databases from backup, perform SQL file inserts, advanced SQL queries, and much more. Accounts with Database Access can create and manage up to 300 databases with unique logins. All databases have direct access from remote hosts, and support most remote admin programs such as MySQLFront.
