Sorry mate. If you don't have your private/public key, your money is as good as gone. =(

If you still have your MySQL database you can find your keys there.

As long as your keys weren't encrypted with a password, you can technically get them back out of that database. But I think you mean just the login password? You could technically replace that password hash with the default one to reset it back to "12345" to get you back into the client.

Even if they are encrypted with a password, as long as you know the password and can recover them even in encrypted form you should still restore a system. :)

You mean the password used to encrypt your key, not get into the client? Because if you knew that password, you wouldn't need to do a manual recovery. :P
