    Check on the right menu.

    Have a read and ask all you want.
    And keep a copy of everything while you move :)

    quick question:

    i am lost here....

    open the file 'wp-config.php' on your wordpress install, and change the details for your new mysql connection. That's the first change done.

    i opened the file but i dont know what to change.

    You want to change the part that says:
    define('DB_HOST', 'mysql.example.com');
    to whatever your mysql server is.
