    you don't absolutely have to back it up because ImpEx does not alter the original database (make sure your source and target aren't the same database); however, it is always a good practice to preform back ups before major operations. The shown configuration looks okay; if you ever need to revert it back, simply extract the zipped file it gives you, and then execute the sql query in it on the server.

    Cheers.

      The old database needs to be in mysql for ImpEx to import it.

          If your host cannot give you access (if cPanel, add % to access list; similarly for other control panels), you can import the output sql to your new host and then config ImpEx to run from there.

          Cheers.
