    I may have really just screwed up bad. If anyone can talk me down and be of assistance I would be more than grateful. Here is exactly what happened:

    My server is Plesk. I wanted to change my plan with them which required deleting one of the databases on my server- i had 2. The second one was setup but not used so was not needed. I deleted it and when I went back to my blog it had a database error message. I opened up my wp-config.php file and replaced the old database name with the one that I did not delete returned to my blog and it prompted me to install WordPress. Now it is empty with none of my posts, pages, or design theme.

    I've already emailed my server about retrieving the deleted database. My last backup was in September. Am I screwed? Are my blogs still somewhere on my server and just need to be retrieved?

    your host - if decent- should have a backup more recent - within a week.
    otherwise you are screwed in that you will have to use that Sep. backup
