XF 1.2 Xenforo db crash issue. Failed to restore

I am unable to restore my xenforo. I've tried restoring the files and mysqldb but no joy. I am having the following error when I ran it on debug mode:

That message implies you are using the wrong credentials in config.php for the database.

Check the db name, user name and password are correct.
