    but im going to use the new version of wordpress instead of upgrading it. i will install the new version to my new domain and i want my old database. is that the same guide that you gave me?

  3. 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:

    Look on the right.
