Move .NET site from one server to another

I have a hosting company that will only export my .net site as files and the backup of the database.  I imported the database fine on the new server and created the site in iis.  I changed my hosts file to point the dot com to the local computer so I could see all error messages.

I get moduleName not found while looking for TypeID...

I don't know how to get the modules installed in the site in iis from the working server. I don't have direct access to the old 2003 .net server. I only the web gui that the hosting company allows to manually backup all the files and export the database.

How do I import the modules or even can I?

Yes. It is a newer version that what the original was create on. Should that matter?

Hello,

In IIS, on the website configuration, you should choose the correct .net version, the .net version that the website was build.

Unfortunately I have no information on this site. The original developer is gone.

I've tried Default, .net 4 and .net 4 classic. They all yield the same result of the error on the webpage described above.
