Timeout when restoring database from live site, database tables missing

Hi, I think something’s wrong with the way I’ve set things up as this has happened a few times now.

I tried to restore the database from the live site with updraftplus, and it timed out, displaying “Briefly unavailable for scheduled maintenance. Check back in a minute.”. If I go back to /wp-admin and try and log in, it no longer accepts my credentials and prints this error:

**WordPress database error:**  [Table 'local.wp_users' doesn't exist]
`SELECT * FROM wp_users WHERE user_login = 'username'`

Has anyone else come across this?

The only way I’ve been able to regain access to the site is to delete and start again, so I’d love to know if there’s a better way!
