If this is a file that was simply uploaded to your server (no changes to other files), you can download the appropriate version of phpbb, find the needed file and upload that to your server replacing the proboard file.

You can find all versions of phpbb at phpbbhacks.com (http://www.phpbbhacks.com)

Find the correct file using the method I explained above, then using an FTP program or your website control panel, etc to upload the phpbb file.

That should do it unless the file is config.php. In which case you would need to edit the file before uploading it. phpbbhacks.com (http://www.phpbbhacks.com) has a tutorial on editing config.php

You mean a forum member sent you an actual file or a link to the files to download?
