ttyS0 missing


I managed to mess up the file /dev/ttys0 while trying to create a symbolic link to it .
How do i get another copy of that file without reinstalling.
Also if the file is ttys0, why do i have to access it as ttyS0.
I do have the file /dev/ttys0, but if i use it, i get a input/output error.
setserial /dev/ttys0 "/dev/ttys0 input/output error"
setserial /dev/ttyS0 "/dev/ttyS0 No such file or directory"
