Ceph configuration Disappeared?

Was in the middle of re balancing after a set of OSDs went offline and came back up only to find that about 20 minutes later the entire ceph cluster is unresponsive.

upon looking into the issue the ceph.conf is now completely empty and I have no clue how to proceed without having to manually deleting all of the ceph services and config and restarting from scratch.

Running Ceph Quincy 17.2.6 and proxmox 7.4-16
