    Just create a new DB and user on the new web host, then change the DB name, username and password in the wp-config.php file, found in your wordpress root directory.

    Your old details will already be in the wp-config.php file.

    But it's not important- just create a new user & DB on your new webhost, then import your dump to the new DB, then add the new user/ DB details to the wp-config.php file.
