First of all, the beta (2.99.0) and RC (2.99.1) releases should not be used in production environments - they are only meant for testing.

To move your database, you're going to have to install the same version of Links SQL that you had on your old server on the new one and import the data there. Then, you can upgrade to 2.99.1 (or soon 3.0).

It depends on how you exported the data. The recommended way would be to go to the admin => Database => Import/Export.
