So other than the update, all I want to do is add Tapatalk once the db guy adds support in the config for modules.
So I take it the hosting is under the former owners name as well, since he's passed I would check for FTP access - you can then run a backup of the sites files and database via something like MySQLDumper or similar. If you don't find a way to backup, once the hosting contract expires and/or the domain expires you'll be sitting with no forum to visit so please be sure to find a way to copy the site so at least another forum with years worth of posts isn't canned per say.

How do you click "like" here? I don't seem to have that option?
Heck, I can't even view the picture I just uploaded.
It says I don't have permission. lol

Ahh, I bet it has something to do with this:

To be able to download modifications, view code, post in certain forums, or receive support here at vBulletin.org you must prove that you have a valid vBulletin license.

I just got FTP access today!

The folder structure looks to be a serious mess.
This site has changed software & versions a few times it looks like.
It took me some time just to find the config.php.

Thanks for the suggestion, I'll start researching how to do a full backup.
I'm worried about doing something that will either slow down the site during the backup or piss off the hosting site if I download so much at once.
