After you install MySQL on the other machine, you can dump the all the databases and move them to the new server.  This page tells about 'mysqldump': http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/mysqldump.html

Hello jbredariol,

The simplest way is
Copy the mysql data files (i.e the files are usually located in mysql->data->dbnamefolder

For example you have installed your mysql in c:\mysql folder and the dbname is mydb then

just copy all the files in c:\mysql\data\mydb to your pen drive and copy the same files to your destination and ofcourse that is to copy to mysql/data/dbname folder.

I hope you got it.

Hi,
Please shutdown the mysql server before copying mysql files. This will help to prevent file corruption at destination server.
Various mydql backup methods are described at: http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/backup-methods.html

Regards,
Bimal Mankara
