HI!

This can be done like this

On your current host ( old forum location )

With the Admin Panel
Create Database backup (data and structural)
(the script will ask you to save the file on your computer)

On your New host ( new forum location )
With the Admin Panel
Restore Database
upload your saved database backup with the script

This should be ok
