    importing database

    to import a database to your phpmyadmin , do you need to create the database in your hosting first? then you go to that database in phpmyadmin click import and import? or you go to phpmyadmin and click import right away and db will be automatically created while imported?

    Depends where you initialize the export.
    You should always import into existing database. It's way safer.
    If you click your database on left and select export your should be good to go.
    When exporting check that the title is "Exporting tables from "xyz" database"

    Yes you o

    Yes, you do have to create the DB on your hosting first, then login to PHPMyAdmin and click "import" from there you'll get the option to pull DB file from your computer. It should be a very simple process. Good luck. I just did the same thing for cryptozink for the first time and it was successful without any hiccup.
