I deleted the ShareWebDb. (No backup).

During a migration from SBS 2003 to SBS 2011 I some how managed to get the instructions mixed up.
1. all went well until I got to 'Migrate SharePoint Web site'
by which stage I was tired and should have called it a day (1st mistake)
2. I stupidly followed the instruction for migrating from SBS 2008 to SBS 2011.
Instead of from SBS 2003.
3. By wrongly following these instructions "TechNet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg615995.aspx" I deleted the ShareWebDb. (No backup).
4. After realising my mistake I tried to follow these instructions "TechNet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg680312.aspx" to recreate the windows sbs sharepoint web application. but after recreating I get this error.
Cannot open database "ShareWebDb" requested by the login. The login failed.
Login failed for user '<domainNAME>\spfarm'.
Troubleshoot issues with Microsoft SharePoint Foundation.
which doesn't make sence as im using ,<domainNAME>\spwebapp not spfarm
