    As Brett said, just create the forum again. You will probably have to run this query to assign the old threads to the new forum:

    UPDATE xf_thread
    SET node_id = new id
    WHERE node_id = old id;
    Then run these counters:

    Admin CP -> Tools -> Rebuild Caches
    > Rebuild Thread Information
    > Rebuild Forum Information

    That should do it.
