You need to use PHP myadmin. This is available as part of cpanel (which I think you have, no?) You will have the ability to import a database in myadmin and that is what I suggest you do first. When it is there you will simply need to upload your forum files to your server and you should be good to go. Btw, is there any reason you haven't used the 'point and click' forum creation on cpanel? Why not set up a fresh forum using that and simply copy over any changes you have made to images and stylesheets? That's what I'd be doing.
