If you're on a Mac and you have a backup, this should help: http://dwcourse.com/dreamweaver/recovering-lost-site-definitions.php

Just rename the Site Prefs file or move it to another folder so you can restore it if things go wrong. Then restore the Site Prefs file from a Time Machine backup from when things were working.

After the first time this happened (on a Dreamweaver crash, and it's happened more than once) I made saved another copy of my Site Prefs on another drive just to be safe.

BTW, Time Machine has saved my butt numerous times. It's my single favorite OS X feature.
