Run the Akonady tray from Kmenu > Applications > Utilies > Akonady tray.

On sistem tray will appear something like a blue world. Choose with right 
click Configure and then in the first tab click on the button Modify or Add. 
Choose the path where your file is and Akonady will check and use your 
addressbook. Next to the resource will appear a green dot and the word 
You added, for example, a new resource and then pointed to the old file. This 
works for me, even if I get error with the database and have to start the 
standalone version of the addressbook app (known and shared problem, AFAIK...)

This is my experience.
