what errors you are getting ?
you can take backup of database & important files and re-install. however I don't think re-installation fixes errors.

I can't load plugins. When I don't lose any of my datas than a reinstall isn't a problem for me. I will install all my main plugins easy again.

Thank you,
CabCon

assuming that you have a legit forum,
if direct help required & if you can wait for some time then
you may PM me temporary access to forum admin panel & files (FTP) to check the issue

the issue is that I deleted the admin index.php file (a mistake). So I reload it with the one from your donwloaded 1.8.6 version. After that the Plugin Section don't work anymore... So that Is the problem. 

So can I reinstall myBB and use the database for the new installed version? To merge all posts/threads/users to the new installed version ? Big Grin

loading of plugins section page depends on the code used in plugins you have.
have you disabled the plugins before upgrading ? can you list all the plugins files

reinstalling MyBB is unnecessary. you can move all plugin files to a temporary folder
(eg. inc/temp) and move back files one by one to find which plugin is causing the issue.

MyBB 1.8.x forum can be upgraded to MyBB 2.0 - i.e. existing forum content will be available after upgrading
