Local windows installation - access denied for user after importing a site and running locally

What issue or error are you experiencing?

I’ve imported a zip file (my site + database) I’m trying to open wp-admin.
Fatal error : Uncaught mysqli_sql_exception: Access denied for user ‘abchwy_wp142’@‘localhost’ (using password: YES) in C:\Users\ashef\Local Sites\fenceprosfull-ca\app\public\wp-includes\wp-db.php:1636.: mysqli_real_connect(Object(mysqli), ‘localhost’, ‘abchpywy_wp142’, ‘)@SpXXXXX’, NULL, NULL, NULL, 0) #1
What is wrong with my user name/password after I imported and run it locally?

What steps can be taken to replicate the issue? Feel free to include screenshots, videos, etc

Security Reminder
Local does a pretty good job of scrubbing private info from the logs and the errors it produces, however there’s always the possibility that something private can come through. Because these are public forums, always review the screenshots you are sharing to make sure there isn’t private info like passwords being displayed.
