    Correct me if I am wrong.

    Will this method work?

    Create another wordpress on another host.

    Back up database.

    Replace the whole wordpress file on the other host EXCEPT wp-config.php

    Reupload database.

    Will it work?

    I mean a proper way is to create mysql database through cpanel and then change wp-config.php

    However, I like to use fantastico.

    ask your current for a mysqldump, and ask him to zip that for you. download that zip through ftp, and upload it to the new host, and ask them to unzip it and dump it back into the new db. Zero data loss. Every other format of export/import will cause data loss, or have the entire db corrupted.
