The new database you are trying to restore Stash into was created with a different username/password from the previous database
The backup client needs the new database to be totally clean and configured just like the first installation of Stash as described on each of different database types of the Connecting Stash to an external database document.
If you are restoring Stash to a new database and you have different user/password, please make sure you specify the
jdbc.override parameter and all the other
jdbc parameters as described in Restoring Stash into a DB are passed during the restore.
