2. Click the database name on the left-hand side of the page.
3. Select the Export tab
4. Select the Save as file option
5. Click Go.
Then import the copied database into the new database on the other hosting. You'll first need to create the new, empty database on your server using the account control panel. After the new database has been created:
1. Login to the new database using phpMyAdmin
2. Click the database name on the left-hand side of the page
3. Select the Import tab
4. Click the Browse button under "File to import", then select the database file from your computer
5. Click Go to import the database
Hint: If you see a "No database selected" error, it's probably because you forgot to first click on the database name in the left-hand column.
