wp site not showing pages, posts, images, favicon etc

Hello, there!

I am testing a second wp site in my droplet. I restored database and wp-content, but not everything shows up. Plugins are there all activated. The theme is also active. But no pages or posts or images of the original site i am trying to migrate. It seems the site is not accessing its correct database. The articles showing are of the on board theme, ‘hello world’.

Some idea?

Site alive. But. The conflict with permissions continue. I log in my wp-admin with user and password of my older install in the shared hosting. It does not accept the user and pass defined in mysql and wp-config file in the new install. I have only one database for the new wp site. Where to begin.
