It means that you killed your RealURL configuration :( realurl_conf.php is not the same as realurl_autoconf.php.

When in doubt, do not play an expert but ask!!! Would you mangle with an electricity circuits that freely? Probably no because it is dangerous. Doing something with TYPO3 that you do not fully understand is dangerous for your site. So don't play, ask! There is always someone here to answer. 

realurl_conf.php contains manual configuration with all site–specific settings. If you delete that you loose all customization you or somebody else made for the site. realurl_autoconf.php is a generated file and contains a mnimum basic configuration without any customization. It is generated by the RealURL automatically if such option is enabled in the extension properties and manual configuration is not present.
