As of today, I get the following error on the Finished page: Unable to connect to the Database: Could not connect to MySQL.

It's strange as the database restoration is successful. I have to manually configure the configuration.php for it to work, so it doesn't seem to be a database credential issue as it does actually restore it.

I've tried several backups and they all appear the same. I'm attempting to restore on on MAMP.
