          is there an easier way than using telnet because lets face it im not the best with the thing heh.

          I backed up my database through the VBs CP so can i skip a few stages. I need to get it into the new server

            Turns out the host doesn't support telnet

              Do they support SSH? Same thing, except more secure.

              If not, then your best option is to ask them to restore it for you. Even better, find a host that allows SSH!

                Now i've found out they don't support telnet or SSH and won't restore it in the near future. Is there any other way of moving the MySQL database to this server?

                  Wow! That's a pretty unreasonable stance on their part. If they don't offer these services, the least they could do is to restore the backup for you. Heck, it only takes a minute or two!

                  I have seen some threads in which people have used phpMyAdmin to restore a database. However they have to do this manually one table at a time. If your tables and db aren't too large, this may work. It's hard to say.

                  This is the closest thing to 'instructions' I can find on this procedure:

                  Good luck! (And consider finding a more reasonable host. That one will give you nothing but problems!)

                    Thanks i'll give it a try even though i have database that is over 100MB big because of the 100,000+ posts and 2,500 members.

                    It is definently out of order how the host is acting. It is a reseller account im using. Luckily i didn't pay neither did the person who owns the reseller he got the reseller for free as he designed their site for them.
