How to replace a corrupted database file in FMS?

Your post

Our server on which FM Server 9 Advanced is installed shut down unexpectedly. This caused one of our hosted database files to close and not reopen, as seen in the Administration console. This file is a key component to one of our programs, and thus makes the whole program inoperable.

I restored this file using the Restore command on FileMaker Pro11. The instructions in one of the FileMaker manuals cautions not to use this restored file going forward, but to copy the most recent changes to the original. How can this be done when the original file won't open?

Then, I would need to replace the corrupted file with the restored version of it. What is the correct procedure to accomplish this?

Thank you for your help!
