Hello, I host my site on 1and1 (groan) and there were 2 databases. I accidentally deleted one and my site went down, i get the following message:

There has been an error processing your request
Exception printing is disabled by default for security reasons.

I have the SQL dump and I created a new database in 1and1 and then imported the dump via myphpadmin. So i should have the same database as before with a different name.

The database that is listed in my app/etc/local.xml file is still up and running - that isn’t the one i deleted and re-set up. I cant find reference to the other database at all.

I’m at a loss! Where can i find this other database info so I can change the name?
Is there something else i need to do that im not doing?
