What steps should I follow to make the secondary server as the primary server where the database is in read only mode. Do I inactivate log shipping and restore the read only database from the transaction log.

Disable the LS jobs. Recover the database with either a final tlog backup if you can get it or recover what you have on the secondary.

FROM ... <--omit this if you can't get the final tlog backup in the case of a disaster or similar
