Database not shared error

We recently had a server crash that houses the ACT DB. I restored the server and the directory that the ACT DB was in. From the client I go to open the same DB and I get the following: " The database is not shared. To access layouts, templates, and attachments associated with the database, it must be shared. Please contact the database administrator for more information".

 

I have the db files in this folder

 

dbname.adf

dbname.alf

dbname.pad

 

How do I get this opened?

I figured it out. The server name changed so I had to change the info in the .pad file and now it works.
