I want to make sure im doing this right, i forgot to disable plugins on upgrade to 1.8, so someone suggested downgrading to disable plugins etc and then re upgrade, but i want to make sure im doing this correctly, im not sure if it was 1.6.14 or 1.6.15 but i dont know if that matters?, but do i add the files and then the back of of the database? 
You can't downgrade... Doesn't matter that you didn't disable plugins - if you have any problems because of that, post them.
i have a problem with a translate plugin, it wont disable, this is the error i get

It's probably supposed to be rebuild_settings() with _ in the middle

thanks i try this

EDIT: this worked, but now half my plugins dont work with 1.8
First step to upgrading is to put your forum offline (preferably with a .htaccess file). Second step is to make a backup of your files and database. Upgrades normally go smoothly, but the backups are a must in cases like yours.

If your site relies heavily on many plugins, you may want to stay with the latest 1.16.x release until the plugin developers release 1.8-compatible versions.
also since the update i cant clasp my threads

if the backup is using 1.6.14 do i need to put 1.6.14 files in?
^ yes. existing files should not be deleted - should be overwritten (replaced) with 1.6.14 backup files
