    I assume you have a shared server. Many web hosting companies offer phpmyadmin. Call yours and ask if they offer it. Ask them what type of utility they offer for you to administer your mysql database.

    Make sure that its completely empty.

    Do you have phpmyadmin?

    ...like i said,i do not know much about database but it would be good if i knew where to start learning!
