Yes, you destroyed it. But since it's not been supported since 2017 and is riddled with security problems, it's probably a good thing in the long run. It's dangerous to run and should not be used.

Pick a supported distro and install that. CentOS 7 is supported until 2024, CentOS Stream until much the same date. Rocky and Alma Linux are RHEL 8 clones and will be supported until 2029 (assuming they survive).

No-one should run CentOS 5.
CentOS 6 died in November 2020 - migrate to a new version!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.
