You need to contact your host. They removed InnoDB. That's not cool. :)

Did you make any changes between it working and not working?

Upgrades, add-ons, etc?

You could also compare the 2 databases to see what the differences are - missing or truncated tables for instance.

In which case I would contact your host to see if there was some kind of server related issue as under normal circumstances that shouldn't happen.
