    Soon I want to change my webhosting. Domain is same, so I only need to change dns server and upload wp.
    I have few question before start migration.

    I need to backup all data (files, images, folders) of current wp on HDD.
    1. Backup database (should I check in phpmyAdmin "drop if table exists" when I do backup???)

    2. Now, should I install wordpress on new webhosting and upload backup, or just upload all data without install???
    3. After uploading, I need to update database (with backup), right?

    I have already read manual about moving wp, but still I am not sure what to do.
    Thanks in advance.

    I move my WP recently, and only trouble i have at that moment, it's a non-latin symbols in uploaded files, i suggest that you didn't have such trouble :)

    Moving is very smooth and easy.
