Have you imported the sql-statements as well? (mysql opencms < website.sql)

There are two ways to create a project:
1. Way: 
Change view to administration
Choose Projectmanagement
Choose New Projct
Enter a project-name
Enter a short description
In the following line type /
and click on the blue arrow
Click OK-Button
Now your project is ready

2. Way:
Change view to explorer
Choose "Create as project" in the context-menu
Make sure all ressources you need are in that project
Click OK-Button

In your case to import the whole website you have to choose "/"
Your project contains only "/content/" so you miss more than 50% of the

That's because of you haven't created a "/"-Project - try again!

If you had imported the workplace correcty you get an ressource
"/index.html" You can click that resource to view the website.

You also can point your browser directly to

You never should mody resources in the folder "/content/bodys/". OpenCms
controls these resources on its own. If you log in as a "Normal User" you
can't see that folder.

Hope that helps.
