Yabb 2.5 Upgrade - do not see permission levels

We recently upgraded to YaBB 2.5 anniversary edition.  With the old software, when we added a new person, I just adjusted their permission level via their profile so they could see the topics etc.  I need to do that with this new software also as all new entries are entered as YaBB Newbie but with the differences in software, I am not seeing where I can change this on their profile, like on the old software.  Do I need to do something to activate the different levels so they are visible and accessible to link to members?

What version did you upgrade from ?
In User Profile - Admin Edits, should allow you to change membergroup position

I don't remember what the previous version was.  With the prior version, as you suggested is how I changed membership position.  When I try to do the same now - user profile to admin edits, the only options I see are YaBB Administrator or Global administrator.  None of the other options are there.

Did you do a full New install or overwrite the files in your old forum ?  Sounds like you might have overwrote some variables.  Check in Admin Center - Membergroups to verify the old membergroups are there and setup correctly.

I did not do the upgrade - the webhost did.  I don't believe it was done as a new install since we needed to maintain all the existing information and members.  Here is what I see in Membergroups:

Staff Member Groups These groups cannot be removed) 
YaBB Administrator  x 5 Red Yes Edit   
Global Moderator  x 5 Blue Yes Edit   
YaBB Moderator  x 5 Green Yes Edit   

Post-Independent Member Groups (Add Group | Reorder) 
There are currently no post-independent groups

Post-Dependent Member Groups (Add Group) 
God Member  x 5   500 Edit Remove
Senior Member  x 4   250 Edit Remove
Full Member  x 3   100 Edit Remove
Junior Member  x 2   50 Edit Remove
YaBB Newbies  x 1   -1 Edit Remove

  mmmmmm YaBB 2.5 AE has not been released as a cpanel one button install nor as an automatic upgrade.

  Are these (?) the exact same membergroups you had before the upgrade ?  No Independent ?  Dependents ?

I don't know what was there before.  I did yesterday edit the God level to make it public - none of these were public.  Doing so, it activated many members and now in the edit profile area, I do see that level for approval level.  But, when I checked signing in as a member assigned to that level, I still could not see any of the files that approved members should be able to see.  Also, that level is now posted in the post independent member group - no longer in post dependent.

I see no old forum tracks (folders/files) on your website, I see many missing files from your yabb2/Members folder.  If you have access to your old forums Members folder, you need to upload again ALL the files from it to your new yabb2/members folder.

Why then would I be able to see everything as an administrator?  I see all the files there, but no members can.

Edited:
It "may" be due to a ftp limitation.  Some Host servers limit the view of folder files to 2000.  Use your Host Panel and verify there is 2 *.txt files (memberlist and memberinfo), also most users should have additional files other than the vars file (log, rlog, ims, outbox)

Note from webhost: there are 24,626 files in the Members folder. memberlist.txt and memberinfo.txt are among them. There are some *.log, *.log, *.ims, *.outbox files, but not nearly so many as *.var files.

BTW, the majority of these members are spam that were never provided with actual access. 

So it appears all files were transferred but members who should be able to see files cannot see them, yet I can.

Ok you should verify what are the membergroup names you had used before (If they are different).  This is visible in the Memberinfo.txt file.
