Sharepoint restore from SBS 2008 Backup

At the weekend a Sharepoint update caused it to stop working. I have now got Shareoint WS 3.0 running, but the data on the site is now back to the default with none of the old data.

I now have a couple of issues

1. Companyweb doesn't work. Then new site seems to use the http://server:38803
This brings up the central administration, but not the main site.

2. I've tried restoring a backup but still the same problem. I've now downloaded the backup (which was the last working one from before the problem) to a seperate folder and have 5 files, but not sure how to get them back into sharepoint.

3. I've tried reinstalling, but still can't get the old data or site to display.

I've tried googling the to find out how to do this, but have not had any success. Whilst looking at the issue above I've found out IIS has two Sharepoint sites in it. One called "SBS Sharepoint" and another called "Sharepoint - 80". I can't get either of these to work changing the binding settings.

Any help appreciated. Really need to get this back up by tomorrow

RowdyBeans, first try going to http://servername:80 the url you show is pointing the central admin by the port number at the end. Next the easiest way to recover is to restore the content datbases to your sql server the reinstall SharePoint and when you create you new site collection attach it to the restored database. this will return your old data.

After a lot of research I managed to get it back up and running. Manually adding the content database to a new site.
