Database connection to mysql

my local site has lost connection to mysql database, i have tried to setup connection in the wp.config.php file however when launching the website it takes me to a clean install of wordpress, my folders still contain al the artwork and images for my site but does not display when launching the site from local. I did make a backup of the database prior to the issue and have tried dragging the backup over local for the mysql database however does not import as it is only the mysql backup and not a full site backup, backup was done using database backup for wordpress which allows you to backup but not restore, how would one go about restoring the database to get my local site up and running again.
