Restoring backup

My web hosting server is down and I have to change hosting companies. I have done the back up through the links program.

After I install the program on to the new server, please could you guide me how best to install the back up into the system?

Its a pretty simple process really. Inside your admin/backups/ folder, you should see loads of backup files (1 to 10). Get the newest one, and then goto Database > Import/Export > in the import part, type the path to the file (may be able to get away with typing backup/backup.1.sql , or whatever the fiel name is).

Then you should see details on how far the import has gone, and any errrors it may have found.

Hopefully that will sort things out for you :)
