2.0 forum gone after converting to 3.0

I converted my 2.0 forum to 3.0 and now, my 2.0 forum can't be found. "can't connect to database" or something. It's not that big of a deal since I was planning to delete it anyway, but I wondered why that happend.
Also, the conversion went great, but I noticed all the avatars and smilies from the old forum show up in the new forum. Are the 2 forums still connected to eachother in some way?

The conversion doesn't write to your phpBB2 board at all. Does the database your version 2 board used still exist?

The converter copies all the smileys and avatars over from your old board. The boards are NOT linked after the conversion.

Thank you for the reply!
Yes the database for 2.0 is still unchanged. The only thing I did to the 2.0 forum was disable it during the conversion (the instructions said to do that). After the conversion, I enabled the old forum again (clicked the button) and then right after, it got the error message.
I really only wanted to enable it, to inform the people about the new forum.

And thanks I didn't know the images were copied too.

Heheh, I messed up...
I changed the password to my old forum cause I forgot it and didn't update the config file.
Problem is solved.
