    the website is http://www.agirlinlove.com/heretoday

    I’m using 1and1.com

    The sql database (it’s 4.0) accidently got deleted (accidentally means I clicked the wrong thing and than died a little)
    I called 1and1
    they saved it from propegating and retrieved my database

    I have the sql dump BUT I had to make a new database to import it to
    I imported it
    I updated the config. php with the new info

    BUT

    when I go to the blog it asks me to set up a new site (the wordpres famous 5 minute install)

    Is this right I’m TERRIFIED that I’ll do this and it’ll overwrite all my info

    is there any hope

    please please please I’ll be forever in the persons debt who can help me!

    Thank you so much in advance
