That's interesting. You were trying to restore on GoDaddy, right? I assume that you might have bought one of their cheapest service levels. These come with several restrictions, one of them being the number of database command you can execute per minute. This limit is fine for very low traffic sites but it's a major problem when restoring backups. By definition, restoring a backup requires executing hundreds (if not thousands) of database commands to restore the entire database of the site. According to our experience you can usually work around that by asking your host to temporarily lift these limits while you're restoring your site.
