    In this case, it is recommended that you upgrade the old blog before moving it.

    In the sql file, delete the lines above this one;
    DROP TABLE IF EXISTS wieonline
    those other lines are more for you than the database anyway.

    You have backed up ALL your data ?

    There is more information here:
