This looks more like a problem in importing revision or text tables
than the page table you reimported.

Also, have problems in your namespaces.
Your recent changes page shows:
 (Patrol log); 16:03 . . TomD (Talk | contribs) marked revision 4605
of :Container park run 1.0 patrolled (automatic)
 (Upload log); 16:33 . . Kefcom (Talk | contribs) uploaded ":TV in
trash.png" (Container park run 1.0 logo)
(it should be  Talk:Container_park_run_1.0‎; and File:TV_in_trash.png)

That later problem must come from a Wrong LocalSettings.php or a
problem in language files.

I'd move it away and perform all the steps again from scratch.
