Re-Install Using Old MySQL DB

    While trying to delete an extra FTP account for another administrator under my cPanel, it also deleted all of the files in my directory. I'm wondering if someone could give me a walk through as to how to re-install WordPress while using my current (or now Old, since the WP install is gone) database, without overwriting anything.

    I did this for my SMF using the "repair_settings.php" tool. Is there a tool like this for WordPress? Or do I just simply edit the config file to match my current database settings?

    The blog I need help with is savingsarasidle.com.

    This support forum is for WordPress.com hosted blogs only. If you have a self-hosted WordPress blog you need to seek help at the WordPress.org forums, not here.

    If you don't understand the difference, you may find this information helpful.

    I have a blog hosted at wordpress, but its not functioning at the moment due to the install not calling on my database.
