Blog error selecting database

Desperate for some help! My webmaster disappeared and I'm a little confused so please have mercy on my amateurish approach here. My website is through 1and1, which recently upgraded to My SQL 5.1 and now when I click on the blog page (admin) I get a series of errors. I have tried calling 1&1 and they don't seem to know how to solve it.

I've done basic maintenance on the website through Text Wrangler since the webmaster vanished, but I'm completely lost on this one. I can't find my password for my b2evo account and it won't send me an email when I ask for it, I was told to create this new account just to create this post.

When I click on my blog page I'm receiving many errors like this: Deprecated: Assigning the return value of new by reference is deprecated in /homepages/16/d205049125/htdocs/blogs/inc/_main.inc.php on line 123

And also this: MySQL error! Error selecting database [db206252365]

I've looked for all the instances of the database info on my php pages through Text Wrangler and changed them to the new database info from 1and1 after the upgrade to My SQL 5.1 but it's still not working.

If anyone can help, I would be eternally grateful, as would my laptop because these poor keys may not survive my frustration much longer. Thanks so much.

Your biggest problem at this point is not your password but this:

MySQL error! Error selecting database [db206252365]

Step 1 is to find your database in your 1&1 control panel and to have a hostname, username and password for your b2evolution database.
