    It’s up t you but I would mark as resolved because the answer to this topic is already in that Moving WordPress link. Also I will monitor this thread if you have further question. I won’t be able to answer right away, but I’ll do my best.

    So as in my previous comment, copy theme and plugin folder and upload to the new WP install. Now we need the database, once you find the database backup (SQL file) that the person gave to you, use a database management tool (like phpMyAdmin or whatever your host provides) to import the SQL file.

    This plugin might help import the SQL file right in the WP admin page (I myself have never used it before but it might be useful for you)

    and then use this tool to search and replace old site url with new one.
