You can lock/delete this thread now. DBM probably didn't show up because I put all the files into one folder and so the folder wasn't recognized. For recount I went to the curse addon page and dropped the _client at the end, was able to download it and now it shows up fine.
I have downloaded what I can only assume is the correct versions for both DBM and Recount (because I got the versions from the stickied post in this forum) and extracted them to the addon folder in Interface>Addons. DBM simply does not even show up in the addon list on the character screen. Recount does but it always bugs out and I can't see or use it. What am I doing wrong?
