One of our servers had a Sharepoint Calendar set up on it. Not knowing the calendar was still in play, Sharepoint was uninstalled from the server (2003 standard).
Now they want the calendar back.
I have re-installed Sharepoint and can get to the admin site and the Sharepoint site.
I have found the old database for the calendar in C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL$SHAREPOINT\Data
How do I reconnect to this database so the old calendar can be viewed on the site? Thanks.
