    1. I will create an addon domain and then move all files there.
    2. Then I will create a database (same name as on old server) and then will run an import using phpmyadmin.
    Is that it or am I missing something???

    hi rmv, do you have access to your cPanel at all? Most cPanels will have an auto installer which allows you do backups and things. I would just look for a nice WP plugin that does a full backup (theme, content, strucure, et cet.) and set up a new WP site.

    that might won't work, usually the databases have your user on the prefix

    If you need to change something, you must do it from wp-config and from the options table. You need to modify the paths and the database settings
