Thank you for your help.
I'm really sad. I think I have lost it all :-(
I think that the INSTALL process erased the database.
Where is located the database anyway? Where should I check it? In the server where I have the website and the weblog databse, or are there content files in some other server (like a WordPress server?)
Please have a look into this email exchange with my hosting service:
Hello Antonio -
In looking over your files and database, it appears that by doing an "install" rather than an "upgrade",
you have deleted the files from your old blog, as well as cleared out the databases from the blog. The program did not realize that you already had information for a blog and so went through and deleted the files you had previously used.
Perhaps a bit late, but WordPress does offer a guide on upgrading your blog, rather than installing.
Unless you have a backup copy locally, it is not possible to restore your blog to it's previous situation (before the "mess").

Subject: CkS Blog - some Help please
I have tried to upgrade my WordPress http://www.chroma-kai- symmetria.ws/CKS_Blog/ to version 2.9.1
Something went wrong and I lost any contact with my weblog's content and template!
I did upload WordPress new files as usual, but I got instructions to INSTALL, not to UPGRADE, the blog afterwards, and so I did...
It was a big mistake! After I did this I was prompted to take the following user name and pssword:
The result was an entire new empty blog homepage! And no way to go back to my lovely blog!
Trying to circunvent this problem so that I could access to my blog's content I introduced new data on the settings page of the "new blog", like giving a new name to the WordPress folder. It's previous name was "CKS_blog", and then I gave this new one: "Exemplo".
Finally, when I try to go to my Echo2Plus hosting server to see what is happening I get this warning from Firefox: "This Connection is Untrusted" !
Now I think it is time to call for help!
1) Have I lost my weblog content?
2) If not how can I get it back?
3) Is it possible to restore my blog as it was before I got into this mess?
