Go to the YaBB Chat and Support Community Forum and at the TOP Menu click on Downloads.  Here will provide you with a Selection of YaBB Versions to choose, including a Selection of Language Zip files.

Select the latest "Stable" Version, at this time and date, it is Ver. 2.5   Unzip this file you have downloaded on your computer.  Unzipping this file will create and copy files to a folder named yabb2 and yabbfiles within the sub-folders:  cgi-bin, public_html, and Quick-Guide created.

NOTE: on "most" modern servers (hosts) it is possible to upload the yabb2 folder into the default domain folder AND yabbfiles folder into the new yabb2 folder.  Do NOT upload the public_html folder to your server, however you decide to install.
  The yabb2 folder "may" be renamed forum, if desired.

The Quick-Guide folder will have a file in it, named Quick-Guide.html, if you double click this file name, your default internet browser should open and load this file.  Use just as you would a website, to view Information on Installing the YaBB Software.
