Since I had a lot of useful help above, I wanted to pay it back with a summary of what I did in case it might help anyone else.

Summary of problem - the server ubbthreads directory was overwritten with a copy of the old install directory in effect wiping out everything on the server. The database was fine and untoucher.

  • I downloaded the current install zip file
  • Installed the current version using a different database name
  • Changed the database name in the config.php file in the include directory to point back to the original database
  • Logged in and ran all the rebuild scripts
  • Went though all the contral panel settings to set them to what I had before
  • Reinstalled all the style wrappers

I thank everyone who helped get back in operation with no loss of data or members.
