I migrated an existing Wordpress site. However I'm not sure where the MySQL DB go into.  Which folder?

Basically I moved the Wordpress from one server to another. I added the index.php to the default directory.

The site is located at:

Www.webit-client216.com

With Wordpress the pages are served up from the server, but I'm not sure how to install MYSQL and add the transaction logs(existing data)

I pulled the Wordpress site from a hosting solution, the directory was never visible to see the directory structure

The Wordpress was on a Unix system not I'm trying to get it to work on a Microsoft windows server OS 2008 using IIS as the web server instead of apache

Any ideas thank you

You need to import the databases from the old server to the new server's MySQL instance.  Instead of copying the files, do a mysqldump to get the database in text format and then import that into the new location.

Alternately, do you have phpMyAdmin available on both servers?
