I am operating on SBS 2003 R1, and was told to update my SQL to 2005, which i did and it worked fine. However when you goto visit the intranet (companyweb) it displays the following msg:

Cannot connect to the configuration database. For tips on troubleshooting this error, search for article 823287 in the Microsoft Knowledge Base at http://support.microsoft.com.

I have had a look at the services and the MSSQLSERVER is there however no MSQL$SHAREPOINT

Not much of a SQL expert but do you not need to upgrade each instance individually? Are the database files still showing for the Sharepoint site? If so, try creating the instance manually and restore the database.

It would depend on your configuration. The databases belonging to the default instance usually live in C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL\Data (by default - this can be changed easily during setup).

In the path above, I think MSSQL can be replaced by the instance name so C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL$Sharepoint\Data might be the location of your Sharepoint database.

This document might be of some help:

If you cant find the Sharepoint database files, you might have to look on your backup media, assuming you were backing your system up.
