One of the easiest ways to do this is to use phpMyAdmin's
(http://www.phpmyadmin.net/) export function to dump your table
structure and data to a text, csv, or xml file and then import this file
on your new server.

If you haven't installed phpMyAdmin you can play around with a demo

Subject: [thelist] Copying mySQL DB's

As with the learning of all new technologies, you have people like me
who are going to torture everyone else with stupid questions (at least
they don't tke long to answe.  So here is a nice one.  I'm using PHP and
mySQL.  I'm developing code on my test server (now that you guys helped
me set it up), but I wondering if it's possible to copy a mySQL database
to a webserver after you've made it on your test server.  The lack of a
sinlge access type file is what is confusing me a little.  Is it as
simple as copying over to the web server then pointing to it using the
server admin?.  Thanks for your help.
