:) Don't worry, it will all work out.
What's the problem when you try to import the database that you exported  
before? If you have cpanel, you might have backups of the database. My  
host creates them every day, so if I try to download a full backup, or  
site backup, don't remember, it gives me a link with the backup file.  
Changing the date on that link gave me the files for previous dates. Try  

If you did a full export of your database, you should be able to import  
it. Let me know what the error is.
