The way you actually dump your SQL tables depends on your host. For example, with HostGator (we recommend them and recommend avoiding GoDaddy & Yahoo) you can access PHP MyAdmin through cPanel. with PHP MyAdmin you can dump your sql tables, open them up on your desktop and then use a text editor to find and replace the old file paths with the new paths.

Thanks.
