Will putting new localsettings.php for wiki erase all my progress?

I have been working on a wiki using the mediawiki one-click install.

I was following step 4 of the instructions on how to change the logo here: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-use-the-mediawiki-one-click-application-image

I followed these steps but now I cannot load my wiki:
"the (IP) page isn't working
(IP) is currently unable to handle this request.
Http Error 500"

Now it is quite likely I messed up some other setting in the localsettings.php on accident.

So my question is: If I put a new localsettings.php file in there will I lose all of my progress? or is this file only settings?

I am very new to this and I apologize if this is a stupid question.
