The config.php file is created automatically when you install WSN, and it contains the information needed to access your database. Thus if it's ever deleted somehow your site will go down.

If you delete your config.php somehow, you can re-create a config.php by hand editing based on this copy:
$dbtype = 'mysqli';
if (!function_exists('mysqli_connect')) $dbtype == 'mysql';
require_once 'databases/'.$dbtype.'.php';
$dbuser = 'root';
$dbpass = '';
$dbhost = 'localhost';
$databasename = 'wsnlinks';
$adb = new db($dbhost, $dbuser, $dbpass, $databasename);
if ($adb->dbh) $connection = $adb->dbh;
$prefix = 'wsnlinks_';

$dirurl = 'http://localhost/wsnlinks';
$uploadpath = '/var/www/wsnlinks/attachments/';

You'll need to enter your database user, password, database name, tables prefix, installation url and installation path to attachments directory in the above. When you save it, make sure you don't have any spaces or line breaks before the <? or after ?> as extra spaces there will cause header/cookie errors.

Description What to do if you overwrite it by accident, or if you're switching servers.
