Reconnecting to MySQL database

I have had to clear out all files on hosting server as I have had an issue.
I then have uploaded all files again from dreamweaver to the host.
I then goto /PowerGallery100/admin and re-enter in my details to the existing database however it is erroring and wont allow me to re-connect to this existing database!!

I hope I dont have to create a new one and download all my existing photos!!!

Can you help me please.

Yeah PowerGallery will through an error if the tables already exists. To go around this issue, rename the tables in the database to something different, and then run the installer again. Delete the new tables that are created and rename the old tables to their old name.
