There are several ways in which this can be achieved. Normally you take a copy of the database, and also important files/folders from the current installation, then install a fresh version of WP an swap the above in. However, there is a much simpler option, depending on the size of the site. Try installing a plugin called all in 1 WP migration. Then export to file. Creat the new WP installation and import the file using the same plugin. This is free on site less than 500mg I believe and a very simple solution.
