Restore Whatsapp from msgstore.db

Nov 19, 2016
I tried to backup/extract my whatsapp database using this tutorial. The extraction also worked, however the restoring afterwards failed and now I have an empty whatsapp, a decrypted whatsapp chat and lost all information of the last 7 years.

Is there any way of restoring whatsapp fron the extracted files (chatsettings.db, msgstore.db, wa.db, whatsapp.cryptkey)? It would be so painfull if all of the data is gone (even though, I have it as a db - it would be gone in Whatsapp which would still be insanely sad).

I hope that anyone can help me, because I'm really desperate. If you need any more information, please feel free to ask.
