SBS Sharepoint Central Admin and IIS help

Hello,

The server in question is an SBS 2008 box.  We had some problems with the Sharepoint_config_... database and decided to run the "sharepoint products and technologies configuration wizard" to remove it from the farm and then run the wizard again to re-create the farm.  This seems to have setup a completely new website in IIS called sharepoint - 80 which is reachable by browsing to http://localhost/default.aspx and contains a blank sharepoint site.  The old website, called SBS Sharepoint is still listed on IIS, but browsing to https://companyweb doesn't bring up the website.  I have seen microsoft support deal with this scenario by making some changes in IIS with bindings and such and making some changes in sharepoint central admin to point to the ShareWbDb database (which I still have on the server).  But I can't figure out the proper steps to do this.  I'm hoping a sharepoint or SBS guru might have run into this situation and can shed some light on the steps.

Thanks in advance for any help.

If you really did create a new config db, then it would have blown away the listing for company web and it's associated db.  If you look in Central Admin, under web application list, do you see entries for both the Company Web and the new LocalHost site?  

You may need to create a new webapplication with the CompanyWeb url, and type in the ShareWebDb as the database name.  This should hook it up to the existing db.

Yes, I believe this is exactly what I need to do, but I'm just uncertain on how do it and what to enter into the various fields to reconnect everything correctly to ShareWebDb and SBS Sharepoint IIS site.  Are you albe to provide any assistance with the steps perhaps?

In Central Admin, create a new Web Application.  The URL should be http://companyweb and the host header should say companyweb.  Choose whether or not to use SSL.  For the database name, type the exact name of the database from the previous site.  For the APplication Pool, there should already be an existing one for SharePiont.  Choose Existing, and look in the drop down.
